Have you been operating your business for at least five years? Do you want to branch out to new markets to which you can offer your goods? If that’s the case, then you certainly need to open up your market to interstate delivery!
It’s an investment every seller should be making right now, especially with e-commerce being widely accessible to buyers. The process is not that complicated. You only need to prepare or invest in a few services.
The first investment you should make is a partnership with a trucking service in Illinois. This trucking service will take care of the interstate delivery for you. While you could say that operating your delivery vehicles is more beneficial for you, it may not be an option if your business is currently too small to warrant the need for your own trucking fleet.
If you do decide to invest in a truck for your interstate deliveries, you’ll need to invest in the requisite license plates in Crestwood, Illinois.
Under the rules of the International Registration Plan or IRP, trucks that deliver goods from one state to another will need to register for an inter-state license plate. This plate will allow the truck to transit between states without having to apply for a license plate for each jurisdiction.
The Plan streamlines the registration of trucks across numerous states in the US. With the Plan in place, trucking operators only need to register their vehicles with one trucking authority to gain permission to cross state lines in their line of work.
If you need help with plates and permits, contact us at Plates and Permits Trucking Services. We’ll be happy to take on that task on your behalf.
