    Riverside County Foreign-Trade Zones


    A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is a secure, access-restricted, Customs & Border Protection privileged area in or near a U.S. port of entry where merchandise both foreign and domestic may be admitted, stored, exhibited, manipulated, temporarily removed, manufactured, or destroyed duty-free! Duties, certain user fees and taxes are only assessed on products that are transferred out of the FTZ and into the United States for consumption purposes. Products that are transferred out of the FTZ and exported abroad are exempt from any duty, user fees or taxes.

    There are many benefits to being a Foreign Trade Zone operator. Some benefits include Duty Deferral, Duty Elimination, Inverted Tariff, and Expedited Logistics.
