Duplicate Carriers can lead to payment delays.
1. Always ask your carriers to fill out the carrier packets.
2. Input their name and MC# into our system exactly as it’s shown on FMCSA, making sure to include any special characters (hyphens, &, commas, etc.)
3. Always check to ensure that the carrier was not created already in the system to avoid duplicates and any type of confusion.
4. Do not create a carrier unless you are absolutely sure that they do not exist in the system.
