FAQ - We hire outside carriers to pull our trailers..?

Question

We hire outside carriers to pull our trailers. What do we need to require from them as far as DQ files or road test or medical certificates?

Answer:

If the driver will be operating under your DOT number, the driver must be qualified by you, including DQ files and doing a road test. If they are simply hiring them as a shipper and they are doing the hauling as the carrier under their own DOT number, then no, you would not need to qualify them.
