  • Tractors must be equipped with a 24-inch sliding fifth wheel, mounted to slide 12 inches ahead of and 12 inches to the rear of center. Our fifth wheel mounting requirements are 47" maximum from the ground

In order for TCS to get your permits and/or baseplate, we will need the following information:

  • Copy of Title showing you or your company as owner.
  • Copy of the Bill of Sale
  • Current DOT Inspection (within the last 30 days) - original copy
  • 2290 or proof of FHVUT payment
  • Certified tractor weight ticket ( with full fuel tanks)
  • If you do not bring the proper paperwork, we may not be able to contract with you.

Review of Qualifications

  • The Department of Transportation ("DOT") has several requirements that must be met before drivers can be qualified. These requirements set forth minimum qualifications, including a general background and character investigation and a medical examination, which shall include one or more drug and alcohol tests.
    All drivers seeking independent contractor status with the company must satisfy all DOT requirements as well as TCS policy guidelines.
    To ensure accurate records and timely processing of qualification paperwork, all physicals and drug testing will be done in Fort Wayne while you are in orientation. If you have a condition that may affect your ability to pass a DOT physical, work with your personal physician to resolve the problem prior to coming to Fort Wayne. This will prevent any delays in processing you into the fleet.
    In addition to the DOT substance abuse guidelines, TCS is subject to several other federal and state laws aimed at insuring a drug-free work place, including regulations under the Department of Defense, and a prohibition by the federal government against drugs and alcohol in the work place. To comply with these laws, TCS has a Drug and Alcohol Policy.
    An investigation of all statements contained or communicated in independent contractor certification process
    A medical examination, including drug and alcohol tests
    To any physician or hospital furnishing any medical information with reference to you as may be necessary for the consideration of your independent contractor request for certification
    Must be in good mechanical and cosmetic condition and must pass a current DOT inspection at an authorized TCS location.
    DOT inspections must be done every 6 months
    Note: Because of the weight and height of our 53 ft. trailers, the above requirements are very important. Please contact your TCS representative with any exceptions to the above specifications.
