ICC MC stands for Interstate Commerce Commission of Motor Carrier which identifies truckers traveling interstate (across state lines). Today, ICC MC Numbers are often not mentioned due to its phase out in 1995 but its credibility and authenticity still stands strong.
What are ICC MC Numbers?
Before Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) implemented USDOT numbers, ICC MC Numbers were the only way to legally validate the credentials of a mover prior to 1995. The ICC MC Number aided in the validity of long distance moving companies moving household goods from one state to the next. Any moving company moving household goods across state lines needed to show their ICC MC Number in the windshield of their caravan.
In 1995, the responsibility of ICC MC was transferred to the Surface Transportation Board (STB). All ICC MC numbers remained active to identify and receive important information pertaining to the owner of each truck.
