My name is Marialice L. Novo and I am the owner of Novoco Incorporated, a freight brokerage company.
Novoco Incorporated has been in business since 1995 and has worked as an agent with various other established transportation companies. Our strongest shipping lines are east of the Mississippi River through the northeast corridor.
As of October 2013, it is required that all persons engaged in the brokering of freight have a new bond issued in the amount of $75,000. All Motor Carriers must obtain a broker’s license if they wish to continue brokering freight. Those customers unaware of this new law would be subject to fines and civil actions initiated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Using Novoco as your broker makes your logistics easier and takes some of the headache out of finding a carrier.
Attention Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) Drivers and Carriers:
Did you know an important law affecting you goes into effect May 21, 2014?
To keep America’s interstate CMV drivers healthy and our roads safer, all interstate CMV drivers will soon be required to have their medical examinations performed by a Certified Medical Examiner listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners.
If you’re an interstate CMV driver, you already need a valid medical certificate signed by a medical examiner. The only change is that after May 21, 2014, you’ll need to go to a certified medical examiner for your medical certificate. If you’ve already had an exam and have a current certificate that certificate will be valid until its regular expiration date.
