Interstate Commerce

Interstate commerce means trade, traffic or transportation between two states or between a state and another country. It also includes movements within a state that originate in, terminate in or go through another state or country. Determination of whether a driver/vehicle is engaged in interstate transportation is made through examination of the shipping papers, labels on the freight, the driver's record of duty status (log book) and responses to the appropriate questions. Here are some examples of interstate transportation:

  • The cargo originates in one state and the destination is in another state or country.
  • The cargo originates in one state, the destination is in the same state and the vehicle passes through another state or country to get to the destination.
  • The cargo originates in one state, moves by motor carrier to another location in the same state and moves by another mode (e.g., air, rail or water) to a destination in another state or country.
  • The cargo originates in one state, moves by another mode (e.g., air, rail or water) to a destination in another state and moves by motor carrier to its final destination in the second state.
  • The cargo originates in another country, arrives in a state and moves by motor carrier to its final destination in the same state.
