How to prepare your business for participating in a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ)
Watch on Demand
Hosted by Thomson Reuters

In the ongoing race to reduce costs and optimize operational efficiency, more U.S. companies are taking advantage of the Foreign Trade Zones Act of 1934. 

Companies participating in a U.S. foreign-trade zone receive extensive cost-saving and operational benefits, including reduction or elimination of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) duty payments and Merchandise Processing Fee (MPF).  Correct weekly filing entries can also save millions per year. They also benefit from inverted tariffs, duty-free re-exports, and a more efficient supply chain. If your business is considering participating in an FTZ, join the Thomson Reuters webinar and hear from our expert panel discussing the business considerations and the practical steps needed to participate in a Foreign Trade Zone.
