My company has both broker and freight forwarder authority. Is one $75,000 bond or trust fund sufficient or do I need 2 separate bonds/trust funds?

One $75,000 bond or trust fund is sufficient as long as the legal entity holding the authorities is the same. Your company will need to file separate BMC–84/BMC–85 forms for the broker and freight forwarder operations. However, the underlying bond or trust fund can be the same for both operations. If your broker and freight forwarder operations are conducted under separate but affiliated companies, each entity must have a separate bond or trust fund. Source: 78 FR 54720, Sept. 5, 2013.
