Freight Broker Surety Bond
BMC-84-Freight Broker Bond - The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires freight brokers and freight forwarders to purchase a $75,000 surety bond before receiving a freight broker license. Freight broker bonds are also referred to as the BMC 84 bond or the ICC broker bond.
Freight Broker Bonds- FMCSA requires all freight brokers and freight forwarders to file either a surety bond (BMC-84) or a trust fund agreement (BMC-85). This requirement exists to ensure that licensed freight brokers and forwarders are held to certain standards as well as to prevent fraud or failure to pay motor carriers or shippers in a timely manner. If freight brokers or forwarders fail to comply with any terms of the surety bond, parties that suffer damages as a result may file a claim against the bond. If the claim is determined to be valid, the surety company will pay to settle the claim up to the full amount of the bond— $75,000. Once the claim has been resolved, it is the responsibility of the license holder to reimburse the surety the equivalent amount of money
