How do I report a freight broker to Fmcsa?
You may also report the incident to the U. S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) Hotline at (800) 424-9071 or online at https://www.oig.dot.gov/hotline.
Can a freight company hold your freight for non payment?
Section 7-307(1), a carrier has a lien on any shipment tendered to it until freight charges on that shipment have been paid. That is, it’s within its rights to hold the shipment and refuse to make delivery until you’ve ponied up what you owe it for moving that shipment, as the final line of your note to me recognizes.
How long does a carrier have to submit an invoice?
A carrier must issue any bill for charges in addition to those originally billed within 180 days of the receipt of the original bill in order to have the right to collect such charges.
