NCH Customs Brokers has a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) warehouse available for our customers. We can also assist you in the process of applying for and operating a FTZ at your own facility.

A foreign trade zone is a designated site licensed by the Foreign Trade Zones board at which special customs procedures may be used. These procedures allow domestic activity involving foreign items to take place prior to formal customs entry. Duty-free treatment is accorded items that are re-exported and duty payment is deferred on items sold in the U.S. market, thus offsetting customs advantages available to overseas producers who compete with producers located in the United States.
