General Jurisdiction Over Freight Forwarder Service

Final rule.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) amends its regulations to require all surface freight forwarders to issue a receipt or bill of lading on each shipment for which they arrange transportation of freight by commercial motor vehicle in interstate commerce. This regulatory change implements amendments enacted in the ICC Termination Act of 1995 (ICCTA). While the current rule concerning receipts or bills of lading applies only to household goods freight forwarders, the new rule applies to both household goods and non- household goods freight forwarders.
