The Tampa Bay/I-4 Corridor (TB/I4) Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) Project, 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 TB/I4 FTZ Project 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 and/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 TB/I4 FTZ Project 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.
Port Tampa Bay also operates as an FTZ site within the TB/I4 FTZ Project. The FTZ designated infrastructure at Port Tampa Bay encompasses its containerized, bulk argo, general cargo, refrigerated, and RoRo facilities.
