Determining if a Foreign-Trade Zone is Right for your Business

There are a number of factors and indicators that can determine whether or not a business should be considering how a Foreign-Trade Zone could be beneficial. Some of the benefits can provide an immediate cash flow savings, while others can streamline your supply chain and reduce paperwork.

  • Large volumes of customs entries in the US
  • Large customs duty payments
  • History of shipment delays
  • Company already has secure facilities and compliant operations
  • Planning an expansion of facility or increase in manufacturing
  • Currently utilizing a Bonded Warehouse or the Duty Drawback Program

What is a Feasibility Study?

A feasibility study is the process of evaluating the savings provided by a Foreign-Trade Zone against the costs incurred through operating a Zone. A simple calculation can be done using our Basic FTZ Analysis Calculator, or some companies hire consultants to conduct a comprehensive feasibility study.
