To get your TXDMV number you need to have your USDOT number to Apply.
Applying for USDOT number, half way through we are asked for a Arbitration Program Name.

This is What we found on moving.com
What is a mover’s tariff?
A mover’s tariff is a document provided to you by your moving company that outlines their rates, as well as any terms of service that are crucial for you to know about before moving day (for example: their cancellation policy or what services may incur additional fees). The tariff may be just one page, or it could be a dozen pages or more.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, all interstate moving companies must provide their customers with a mover’s tariff upon request. The American Moving & Storage Association offers additional information on the federal laws surrounding mover’s tariffs and what they must include.
