Foreign Trade Zones
A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is a designated geographic area considered to be officially outside of U.S. Customs territory. Foreign Trade Zones (FTZs) are designed to promote American competitiveness by encouraging companies to maintain and expand their operations in the United States. Federally designated sites encourage U.S.-based operations by removing or reducing tariffs, minimizing processing fees and expediting the transport of goods from the Port of Entry. These and other benefits can assist your expansion efforts as a growing business in Southwest Arizona. Greater Yuma EDC is the grantee of FTZ #219.
