As supply chains continue to expand across borders, trade compliance is an especially important area involving an increasing number of governmental bodies. Sophisticated users have found they can use FTZ’s to transfer goods from one zone to another to maximize the benefits of the program. Merchandise in an FTZ can be stored, tested, relabeled, repackaged, manipulated, assembled, manufactured, or processed. Some firms use FTZ’s for transshipment, adding value to the product before shipping it to the end user.
