If you are a new freight broker or freight carrier, you will need to file either a trust fund agreement (BMC-85) or an ICC Freight Broker Bond (BMC-84).
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has set the bond amount at $75,000.
Previously, freight brokers could file a $10,000 bond, but with the new transportation law, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), the bond amount is now $75,000.
How Much Will I Pay For a $75,000 ICC Freight Broker Bond?
You will not have to pay the full $75,000 to get bonded. You just need to pay a small one-time portion of this amount.
If you choose to get your ICC Freight Broker Bond with Surety Solutions, you could pay as little as $938 for your bond.
