National Motor Carrier Directory published
Jan 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Complete demographics on 22,000 United States trucking companies are offered by Transportation Technical Services (TTS) in the new 1,702-page National Motor Carrier Directory (NMCD). More than 7,800 toll-free and 18,500 fax numbers are included. The 2004 edition reflects firms with 1.2 million trucks and tractors, 2.1 million trailers, plus $ 192 billion in revenue. More than 2,800 companies are new to the edition.
TTS offers the NMCD, plus six other databases through its new Internet program at www.fleetseek.com. In a 24/7 online environment, 4,100 users access for-hire truckers in North America, plus US private fleets and owner operators — 139,000 detailed profiles in all. FleetSeek additions, deletions, and enhancements are posted every 72 hours; all entries have a last-updated field.
To qualify for inclusion, for-hire truckers must file an annual report with the Department of Transportation/state Public Utility Commission, respond to a four-page mail survey, or answer researcher's questions by phone.
Each NMCD profile offers chief executive officer's name and title; headquarters address; motor carrier and DOT number; Standard Carrier Alpha Code; revenues; specific number of trucks, tractors, and trailers owned or leased; as well as commodities transported — all by company.
Twelve-month Internet access, updates every 72 hours, plus the 1,702 page print copy are $395 ($112 shipping and handling). All or any part of the NMCD file is available on CD-ROM (as few as 1,500 companies) at added cost. Firms that elect the entire database may also download from the Internet for 12 months.
