A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is a secure area under U.S. Customs and Border Protection supervision that is generally considered outside CBP territory upon activation. Located in or near CBP ports of entry, Foreign Trade Zones are the United States’ version of what are known internationally as free trade zones.

A free trade zone, also called a foreign trade zone, formerly free port, is an area where goods may be landed, handled, manufactured, or reconfigured, and re-exported without the intervention of the customs authorities.

Importing and exporting in the U.S. presents many obstacles to business owners, many of which can come up spontaneously, without warning, and often carry significant operational or cost burdens.

As a result, designated areas around the country have been established and zoned to help these businesses better manage their inventory and proactively pivot around any potential roadblocks that might come their way. Two examples of these areas are Bonded Warehouses and Foreign Trade Zones. There are significant differences between these two so we will dive a little deeper to understand what they are.
