We Offer free assistance

Our expertise comes at no cost to you. Here are some of the specific services we provide.

Foreign Trade Zone Agreements

A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is an area within the United States that the government considers outside the country, or at least, outside of the U.S. Customs territory. Certain types of merchandise can be imported into an FTZ without going through formal customs entry procedures or paying import duties.

Some of the benefits of operating within an FTZ are obvious. At the very least an FTZ can help a business defer paying duties. More often, the company pays lower costs, not only to U.S. customs, but to its bank, insurance company, and other vendors.
