IMPORTANT – Zero Claim Tolerance Policy

Transport Financial Services (TFS) issue, administer, and file Trust Fund Agreements for “Broker’s and Freight Forwarder’s with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (“FMCSA”) on behalf of both categories of economically regulated transportation intermediaries.  Essentially, TFS’s authority as a federally authorized surety provider is subject to the express provisions of 49 USC 13906 (b) and (c) as promulgated through the corresponding rules and regulations administered by the FMCSA, particularly the express provision of 49 CFR 387. 307.  Accordingly, TFS will not assume the position or otherwise relieve any of the financial responsibilities occasioned by the actions of such licensed “Brokers or Freight Forwarders” amassing claims, and attempting to divert their own responsibilities in such regards to TFS for payment, as though my financial institution somehow might be construed as a species of actual “debtor.”
