Even though we still have less than 2 months left in the year 2019, it's a good idea to step back and evaluate your operations for the year.
What can you improve upon for next year? Figure out what your weaknesses were and get a game plan to be better next year! Or tomorrow!
Here's a list of items for you to concentrate on and see if there's room for improvement.
Check Your Authority Status
When was the last time you went online and checked your authority status with the FMCSA and Safer.
This should be a weekly task to stay on top of your driver's inspection records, safety score, and insurance filings. It's all available online 24/7!
You must check both systems to get a clear picture of your account.
2020 UCR Filing Has Been Delayed
The UCR annual filing has been delayed for a 3rd year in a row. There's no need to worry about this permit right now. If it's anything like last year they will probably open up the renewal season in January and you will have 3 months to get it filed.
I've noticed that there are other companies telling you to "pre-register". THIS IS NOT NECESSARY! You are only lining their pockets today. This does not benefit you at all. There is plenty of time to file this when the government makes it available.
Renew Mileage Tax/IRP
Check your permit book and go through each one and check one carefully. NM, OR and NY may need renewed. KY is ongoing as long as your account is current. VIN numbers are required for each vehicle.

Different states have different IRP expiration dates. Check each cab card carefully and contact your state if you need to renew them.
Are you saving money on fuel? Are you factoring?
We have an amazing fuel card that can save you some serious money!
Factoring is a great way to keep the cash flowing in your business. It may only take 1 unpaid invoice to hurt the wallet.
