BOC 3 Process Agent
A BOC-3 filing (“Designation of Agents for Service of Process”) is a federal filing in the United States that assigns a process agent to accept legal documents on behalf of a transportation or logistics company in each state in which the company is authorized to do business. A BOC-3 filing is often required before a transportation or logistics company is granted authority to operate.
If you operate a transportation company, you must designate a service of process agent, also known as an “FMCSA agent”, who resides in all states where you do business.
An SOP agent or process agent is essentially an individual or business organization appointed by your business who is authorized to receive legal documents on the principal’s behalf. A process agent must be physically located in each state in which you are authorized to operate and be available at that address during normal business hours.
Every Commercial Vehicle Operator Needs a BOC 3 Agent.
