If you’re a for-hire carrier with federal operating authority, then you are required to have a process agent in 48 states. Should a law enforcement agency need to serve papers on your company in a state other than where you are headquartered, the process agent accepts the papers on your behalf. We can get you 48-state blanket coverage for a one-time fee. We can also make name or address changes on your process agent registration.
