To all motor carriers subject to sections 216, 217, and 218 of the Motor Carrier Act, 1935
George B. McGinty
Interstate Commerce Commission
17 March 1936
March 12, 1936.
It has come to the attention of the Commission that common carriers of property by motor vehicle which operate entirely within the boundaries of a single State are of the view that they are not required to file tariffs with this Commission. However, if these carriers are engaging in interstate or foreign commerce they must file tariffs. For example, if, at a transfer point, they receive from or deliver to another motor carrier, through shipments originating in or destined to points in another State, they are engaging in interstate commerce, and they must file tariffs containing the rates and charges which would apply on such shipments from or to the transfer point.
Under the provisions of Section 217 of the Motor Carrier Act, 1935, common carriers of property by motor vehicle are required to publish, and file with the Commission, tariffs stating rates, charges, and classifications for the transportation of property in interstate and foreign commerce.
Attention is directed to the Commission’s order of February 21, 1936, requiring that tariffs or schedules of all rates, fares, and charges of motor carriers subject to Sections 216, 217, and 218 of the Motor Carrier Act, 1935, be published, filed, and posted on or before March 23, 1936, to be effective not earlier nor later than April 1, 1936. Such tariffs or schedules must be published, filed, and posted and kept open for public inspection in the form and manner prescribed by Tariff Circulars M F No. 1 and MP No. 2, which were made effective January 8, 1936.
[seal] George B. McGinty, Secretary.
