Foreign Trade Zone

Do your products require additional processing before they reach their “complete” state? We help set up your best FTZ option. The FTZ allows you to pick up your goods upon distribution eliminating taxes over inventory.

Free Trade Agreements

The United States currently has in force 14 Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with 20 countries. These agreements help manage your costs and import certain goods duty-free or at a reduced customs duty rate with participating countries. We will help you navigate free trade agreements and special trade programs by assisting in the qualification and verification process to take full advantage of preferential rates and lower duties.

Please note that FTA countries update their rules of origin periodically, which may affect tariff schedules. For the latest rules of origin for each FTA and to learn more about FTA benefits for U.S. importers, contact us or visit the International Trade Administration Help Center.
