    Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ)

    We make operating in a foreign-trade zone a familiar experience.

    Our Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) services provide a competitive approach to applying for and implementing a FTZ Program to help minimize, or even eliminate, these costly duties and fees.

    You know how to operate efficiently and cost effectively inside the country. Why shouldn’t you be able to do the same outside? In fact, in today’s increasingly competitive global marketplace, you’re faced with just such a mandate: to reduce costs despite extraordinary import duties and related customs fees.

    Our hands-on experience and relationships with officials in the field allows our team to optimize and implement savings associated with operating in a FTZ for many years to come while freeing up your internal resources for other important matters.

    When and why should you consider utilizing a FTZ?

If you assemble or manipulate imported goods, have many customs entries each week, or consistently reach MPF maximum on each entry. Finally, if you import goods into the USA for distribution.

    Our services range from General Purpose Zone (GPZ) operational capabilities in our own facilities, implementation of dedicated facilities (GPZ or subzone environment), as well as third party administration services. These include:
