This is the minimum requirement. If you’d like to have more peace of mind with higher coverage, that’s fine by us.
Why do I need to sign this? First, you can rest assured, this is NOT a contract. Our services are month-to-month. If you are dealing with a reputable company, an agreement should always be set in place that spells out exactly who is responsible for what. This way everyone is protected. There is absolutely no penalty for discontinuing service. And the ‘Limited Power of Attorney’ is needed so that we can sign ‘Setup Paperwork’ with Shippers/Brokers that you may not already be setup with & so we can sign rate confirmations on your behalf.
This is a common practice for shippers, brokers & dispatchers alike.
This not only for our records but also for the Shippers & Brokers we do business with.
In order to make sure all safety & compliance ordinances by the government are being met, we need to keep accurate records.
Since ‘Uncle Sam’ likes accurate records being kept, we make sure to dot all of our i’s & cross all of our t’s.
