As your global supply chain grows, so do the challenges you face managing risk and cost. Perhaps you've considered foreign trade zones as a way to address risk while reducing duties, import taxes and fees, but felt you lacked the expertise and weren't sure about the investment. We can help.

We can assess your specific situation and needs, and provide feedback regarding whether FTZ is right for you, and which FTZ solution will best meet your needs.
You might have been considering an FTZ for a while. We can help you determine if it makes sense for your business. In fact, if you already have a warehouse you may only need our help to ensure it's set up properly for FTZ processing. Once operating, we can manage all FTZ-related transactions. We monitor and reconcile all transactions entering and exiting in order to improve compliance.
