From a licensing standpoint, Pennsylvania is as moderated and even-keeled as its founders. Although the Commonwealth regulates a number of industries, it doesn't go as far as many states. Even better, it keeps its forms and processes relatively simple and clear. Businesses in what was once known as America's Breadbasket won't find their hands tied when trying to establish themselves.
In Pennsylvania, commercial transportation and trucking is a major, vital industry in America. To create uniformity in licensing standards, vehicles crossing state lines need apportioned vehicle registrations under the International Registration Plan – which is available in all states. Intrastate commercial vehicle registration also exists. Additionally, specialized permits for oversize and specialty carrier vehicles are also common in many states. A number of federal licenses from also apply to commercial transportation.
