Interstate trucking companies are governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (â€śFMCSRâ€ť), including trucking operations, driver qualifications, hours of service, maintenance of equipment, insurance, and alcohol and drug testing. Georgia also has state specific regulations governing intrastate trucking companies. Intrastate trucking companies pick up and deliver loads only in the state of Georgia and do not cross state lines. By statute, Georgia has adopted many of the federal regulations as also being applicable to intrastate trucking companies. Under Georgia law, intrastate trucking companies must have minimum insurance of $100,000/ $300,000 in liability coverage. Georgia also has a special exemption for logging trucks from many regulations applicable to other commercial vehicles.
