By deferring, reducing, or eliminating customs duties, qualified companies can improve cash flow, lower inventory cost, and improve their bottom lines. By speeding the movement of merchandise via FTZ procedures, including direct delivery, weekly entry/export, and zone-to-zone transfers, companies can be more competitive, removing critical hours or days from their delivery cycle. FTZ usage also enables companies to reduce inventory levels and to consolidate transaction reporting and costs.
Implementing foreign trade zone benefits starts with a successful federal application but doesn’t end with an approval. FTZ activation and operation are fundamentals to success, requiring in-depth knowledge of inventory control. Selection and implementation of inventory control methodology are essential to the optimization of FTZ benefits.
