Foreign Trade Zone N. 79, serving the Tampa Bay/Orlando I-4 corridor region, assists qualified importers, exporters, distribution companies and manufacturers by dramatically reducing or even eliminating US Customs duties and fees. The administrative area of FTZ No. 79 extends 60 miles or a 90-minute drive from the port area encompassing the entire Central Florida region. Hillsborough and Polk counties have been established as an Alternative Site Framework area, allowing for an expedited FTZ application process.
If your company imports or exports goods, stores imported goods for others, or manufactures or assembles products with imported parts or materials, you might be interested in the advantages the Tampa Foreign Trade Zone offers.
A foreign trade zone is a secured area located within the United States, but is technically considered to be outside the territory of U.S. Customs.
Therefore, foreign trade zones offer the ability to defer, reduce or even eliminate Customs duties on products, resulting in tremendous savings for your business.
The Tampa Foreign Trade Zone offers a variety of general-purpose sites throughout Tampa and Hillsborough County. Facilities with more than one million square feet of warehouse space are available for occasional continual use.
