FMCSA announces that La Rosa Del Monte Express, Inc. (LRDM) has requested an exemption for its specialized “Small Residential Shipments” (SRS) from the consumer protection regulations for the transportation of household goods (HHG) in interstate commerce. LRDM requested that its SRS consisting of fewer than 10 items weighing less than 1,000 pounds total be exempted from the HHG regulations. LRDM claims that the need for the exemption is made clear by the statutory Limited Service Exclusion (LSE) for household goods motor carriers. LRDM believes that an SRS exemption is consistent with the purpose of the LSE.
