Interstate operation (crossing state lines)
Interstate authority for carriers hauling regulated commodities is done at the Federal level and authorized carriers receive an "MC" number.
Intrastate operation (operation within Wisconsin only)
Intrastate operating authority is permission to haul a commodity or product for someone else. This is also known as being a "for hire" carrier. If you are a Wisconsin based carrier or an interstate "for hire" carrier and wish to haul for hire on an intrastate basis, it is necessary to obtain operating authority from our office. When authority to operate is granted the motor carrier will receive a certificate. This certificate will indicate your intrastate authority number designated by the letters "LC" and followed by your account number.
To apply, complete the Wisconsin Motor Carrier Authority Application form MV2843.
