What is a Freight Broker Bond (BMC-84)?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires all freight brokers and freight forwarders to file either a Freight Broker Bond (BMC-84) or a trust fund agreement (BMC-85). Freight Broker Bonds (BMV-84) are also known as Freight Bonds, ICC bonds (Interstate Commerce Commission), Truckers bonds and Freight forwarder bonds. Freight Broker and freight forwarders who do not meet the bond requirement can be fined up to $10,000. The bond requirement exists to guarantee that licensed freight brokers and forwarders complete their contracts and agreements and to prevent fraud or failure to pay motor carriers or shippers in a timely manner. If freight brokers or forwarders fail to comply with any terms of the surety bond, parties that suffer damages as a result may file a claim against the bond. If the claim is determined to be valid, the surety company will pay to settle the claim up to the full amount of the bond— $75,000. Once the claim has been resolved, it is the responsibility of the license holder to reimburse the surety the equivalent amount of money.

Should an applicant opt not to obtain a surety bond, another security option is to place the $75,000 into a trust fund by filing Form BMC-85. However, this option requires full collateral up front, so it is typically large brokers with established financial stability that choose this option. Newer freight brokers are encouraged to file a surety bond since it only requires an annual premium (typically 1.2% - 4% of the bond amount), rather than collateral.
