Blanket Agent Services

BOC-3 (Process Agents)

The BOC-3 is used to designate process agents (also known as BOC-3 agents) in all 50 states in which the business operates. It is required by all motor carriers, brokers and freight forwarders to obtain their own operating authority and must be kept on file with the Federal Motor Safety Carrier Administration (FMCSA) at all times. A BOC-3 agent is a designated person or office that accepts legal documents on your behalf.

TSNAmerica is an FMSCA Registered Blanket Agent. With our Blanket Agent Service, we file a current BOC-3 form with the FMCSA directly. Same day service, no third party involvement, which means the filings are done immediately. We are not a low-cost, one-time filing service; instead we stay with you every step of the way, from establishing your authority to keeping you up to date and current.

Our agents are experienced attorneys within the transportation industry, many of them members of the Transportation Lawyers Association, providing a great resource for both us and our BOC-3 clients. Our attorneys have vast experience in all aspects of the transportation community and are more than willing to assist with any legal matters upon retainer.
