In order to actually obtain Zone benefits once a facility has received Foreign-Trade Zone designation, a company must first activate its facility with Customs and Border Protection. During the FTZ activation process the manner in which FTZ procedures are established and implemented will affect the efficiency and compliance of Zone operations for years to come. FTZ Operations established with inefficient or non-compliant procedures result in increased administration costs, decreased CBP compliance, and lower Zone savings.
The Foreign-Trade Zone Corporation will use its real-life operational experience and expertise gained from completing over 1,000 FTZ consulting projects to ensure its client’s operations and procedures are not only efficient and compliant, but result in lower administration cost while maximizing FTZ savings.
The Foreign-Trade Zone Corporation consultants are true FTZ practitioners with hands-on knowledge of FTZ Operations. The FTZ Corporation has a history of successful activations and fighting for our clients. The basis of our knowledge and understanding is simple.
