Call now to obtain your Mexican Certificate of Registration

Introduction to the Mexican Certificate of Registration

In the realm of cross-border transportation, especially between the United States and Mexico, securing a Mexican Certificate of Registration is a pivotal step for motor carriers. This certification empowers Mexico-domiciled public and private motor carriers to transport freight in commerce within a 20-mile radius of the U.S. border. As businesses seek to expand their operations seamlessly across borders, understanding the intricacies of obtaining this certificate becomes paramount.

Essential Forms for USDOT Number and Operating Authority Registration

Embarking on the journey of cross-border transportation requires navigating through specific forms to ensure compliance and operational efficiency. Here’s a breakdown of the essential paperwork:

01 Get a USDOT Number:

  • Form Required: MCS-150
  • Description: This foundational step involves obtaining a USDOT number by filing the MCS-150 form. This unique identifier is essential for regulatory compliance and serves as a means of tracking and monitoring motor carriers.

02 Operating within the Commercial Zone:

  • Form Required: OP-2 Application
  • Description: For motor carriers intending to operate within the commercial zone, the completion of the OP-2 application is necessary. This form delineates the specific area within which the carrier intends to conduct its operations.

03 Operating Beyond the Commercial Zone:

  • Form Required: OP-1 (MX)
  • Description: When operations extend beyond the commercial zone, motor carriers must complete the OP-1 (MX) form. This form provides the necessary operating authority for cross-border transportation.

Navigating the Exemption Clause

It’s crucial to be aware of specific exemptions to streamline the process. Notably, if a business is domiciled in the U.S., and the owner or person controlling the company is a Mexican citizen, the completion of the OP-1 (MX) form is not required. This exemption recognizes the unique circumstances of businesses with Mexican ownership but domiciled in the U.S.
