Operate an expedited, more efficient supply chain with ONESOURCE FTZ Management

Automotive and manufacturing

Take advantage of duty exemption: re-exports, scrap, loss, destruction, and zone-to-zone transfers are duty-free. Inverted tariffs are also an excellent way for FTZs to eliminate or reduce duty liability. 

Apparel and retail

Capitalize on a merchandise processing fee cap and better manage inventory to achieve shorter cycle times, increased inventory turnover, and better traceability in your supply chain.


Utilize FTZs to help reduce costs for yield loss and scrap. FTZs can also help pharmaceutical companies better manage regulatory requirements.

More than 3,000 firms in the U.S. use FTZs to eliminate, defer, or reduce duties, taxes, and fees

Get relief with inverted tariffs

In some cases, tariffs on U.S. component items or raw materials have a higher duty rate than the finished product. A major benefit of operating in an FTZ is that you can elect to pay whichever duty is lower. The duty rate for many finished products is zero, eliminating any costs associated with importing the raw materials and goods. When you choose to pay the lower duty rate on a finished product, you take advantage of inverted tariff savings.

FTZs help you experience cost savings and a better cash flow

Take advantage of cost savings with weekly entries 

In an FTZ, you can file one customs entry per week rather than per shipment. Doing so can greatly reduce the merchandise processing fee (MPF) you must pay with every entry filed. Fewer entries convert to lower fees, which can save thousands of dollars annually.

Improve cashflow with deferred duty payments

Because FTZs are not considered part of U.S. Customs territory, you don't need to pay duties on merchandise upon admission. Duty payment is deferred until the goods are removed from the FTZ and entered into U.S. commerce.

Lower your insurance premiums with foreign-trade zones 

Control inventory more closely by bringing goods into an FTZ warehouse you manage. Typically, for insurance purposes, the duty paid on imported merchandise is included in the insurable value of your inventory.
