Quad City Foreign Trade Zone #133
Foreign Trade Zones (FTZs) are designated sites within the United States where foreign and domestic merchandise is considered to be outside the U.S. Customs territory, allowing companies to defer, alter or in some cases eliminate duties.Foreign Trade Zones can be beneficial to companies that import a large volume of goods. Use of a Foreign Trade Zone can save companies money, increase efficiency and provide flexibility in the way they operate their business.
The program is designed to lower the cost of doing business and stimulate economic growth and development in the U.S. The use of FTZs helps companies maintain the cost of U.S. based operations and keep pricing competitive compared with foreign counterparts.
