Economic Benefits

US Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) consistently face the conundrum of knowing that multiple economic benefits accrue to their local region but are challenged by not knowing which companies maximize those benefits

An FTZ’s inability to fully realize economic benefits of providing companies a cost effective environment for import/export transactions is due to lack of time, resources and expertise to properly identify:


All companies that fall within a given foreign trade zone


Which companies are eligible to receive estimated ftz savings


How much eligible companies can expect to save


Total potential estimated ftz savings aggregated by commodity

FTZ Officials need tools to maximize their economic development zones.
