Standard Carrier Alpha Code (SCAC)

Optional Annual Certificate for Freight Brokers and Motor Carriers

Filing Fee: $95

The Standard Carrier Alpha Code (SCAC) is a unique two-to-four-letter code used to identify transportation companies. NMFTA developed the SCAC identification codes in the mid 1960's to facilitate computerization in the transportation industry. Although not required, many shippers use this number for billing purposes and will not engage your services unless you have a SCAC. This applies to brokers and carriers.
