Navigating the FMCSA and USDA Regulations with Hauling Buddies' Easy-to-Use Lookup Tool
2 min read
When transporting animals, whether for commercial use or personal travel, it is important to ensure that the carrier you choose is safe, reliable, and compliant with all federal regulations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is responsible for ensuring the safety of commercial motor vehicles on the roads, including vehicles used for animal transportation.
At Hauling Buddies, we understand the importance of finding a trustworthy carrier for your animals, which is why we have built a lookup tool that allows our users to easily search and find information on carriers that are licensed or registered with the FMCSA. Our user-friendly tool provides detailed information on the carrier's safety record, compliance history, and insurance coverage.
The FMCSA lookup tool on Hauling Buddies can be used by searching for a carrier by name. This allows users to quickly find the information they need on a specific carrier, including their safety rating, number of inspections and violations, and whether they have any outstanding enforcement actions.
In addition to the FMCSA lookup tool, Hauling Buddies also offers a tool for searching for USDA-licensed Animal Welfare Act professionals. The Animal Welfare Act (AWA) is a federal law regulating animal treatment in research, exhibition, transport, and by dealers. It is important to ensure that any person or business transporting animals for commercial use is compliant with the AWA.
Our USDA lookup tool allows users to search for individuals or businesses licensed or registered under the AWA. Users can search by name or license number, and the tool will provide detailed information on the licensee's compliance history and any violations or enforcement actions.
Hauling Buddies is dedicated to providing our users with the resources they need to make informed decisions regarding the transportation of their animals. Whether you are a breeder, a pet owner, or a researcher, our FMCSA and USDA lookup tools can help you ensure that your animals are transported by safe, compliant carriers. So, when you're looking for a carrier for your animal's transportation, remember Hauling Buddies.
