Licensing of California Cargo Shippers’ Agents




California cargo shippers’ agents are licensed and regulated by the California Department of Insurance. An application, fingerprinting, are required; however, there is no qualifying exam.

Once issued, your license is issued for a 2-year term. You are also required to obtain a $10,000 surety

bond. The surety bond is referred to as a “Bond of Cargo Shippers’ Agent”.




Qualifying and the Premium




Our agency offers the $10,000 California cargo shippers’ agent bond without a credit inquiry, and so you are automatically approved.

The premium is just $100 annually.

When you call us, we’ll ask you for the name, exactly as it should appear on your bond. We’ll also need your business address, phone number, and email address.

After payment of the $100 premium, our agency issues your bond to you for filing.

Upon receipt of your original surety bond by mail, you’ll sign your surety bond form and mail it to the following address for filing:

State of California

Department of Insurance

Producer Licensing Bureau

PO Box 1139

Sacramento, CA, 95817-1139




Premium Prepayment Options




Since your cargo shipper’s agent license is issued for a 2-year period, you also have the option to pay your bond for the term of you license.

A prepayment period of 2 years is $180, which is a $20 savings over annual renewals. Applicants who choose to prepay the bond for 3 years will pay $260, which is a $40 savings.

Purpose of Your Surety Bond Requirement

The purpose of your surety bond is a financial guarantee for the state of California that you’ll provide an accurate detail of any money or insurance premium received from any customer in the course of your professional responsibilities.
