Foreign Trade Zone


Our Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) 252 status removes many of the barriers between companies here and international markets. Not only does this expedite international import/export activity, it makes it cost effective. Companies often find that the integration of a variety of FTZ benefits and procedures enables them to maximize their savings and minimize their operational costs at each point in their FTZ distribution or manufacturing processes.

 Some of the benefits attractive to companies include:

  • Relief from inverted tariffs
  • Duty exemption on re-exports
  • Duty elimination on waste, scrap and yield loss
  • Savings on damaged or nonconforming items
  • Weekly entry savings
  • Cash flow (duty deferral) savings
  • Zone-to-zone transfers
  • Government and military sales
  • Ad valorem tax relief
