Foreign Trade Zone Status

Huge potential savings with Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) or Sub-Zone designation.
As designated Foreign Trade Zone #273, West Memphis’s IDI Interstate Commerce Industrial Park offers importers the potential for reduced tariff exposure. We can even help you establish a Sub-Zone anywhere in Eastern Arkansas!

FTZ and Sub-Zone advantages include:

Duty Deferral for High-Volume Importers
Import and store unlimited inventory worry-free and duty-free. FTZ status lets you store more inventory, improve cash flow, and manage overhead costs better by deferring duty payments until items are sold and shipped out.

Dramatically Reduced Merchandise Processing Fees (MPF)
For companies in West Memphis Sub-Zones, high MPFs are a thing of the past. Receive as many shipments as you can handle for one low weekly fee, regardless of the number of containers.
