UCR - Interstate Carriers


UCR is a registration system created by the federal law known as The Unified Carrier Registration Agreement. It requires participation by all motor carriers, motor private carriers, freight forwarders, brokers, leasing companies, or other persons required to register with the United States Department of Transportation.

Each of those entities must annually register with the UCR system. Registration may be accomplished online or through an entity's base-state. In Colorado, the PUC administers the UCR system; all mail-in registrations for Colorado-based registrants are processed through the PUC, but online registrations are administered through the Indiana UCR online system.

The fastest and most efficient way to register is through the online system at www.ucr.in.gov. (The  Indiana Unified Carrier Registration System administers online UCR registration for all the participating states.)  Online registration fees may be paid by MasterCard, Visa or e-Check. (A transaction fee applies.)
