Foreign Trade Zone
Our 50,000 square foot warehouse located in Battle Creek, Michigan (inland port of entry) is available for processing, testing, and light manufacturing, which could result in the lowering or elimination of U. S. Customs duties.
We offer a full range of distribution services, eliminating the need for on-site personnel. The receipt of merchandise, inventory control, freight forwarding and pertinent paperwork are performed on behalf of and at the direction of the zone user. Our staff has extensive experience in the specialized requirements of supplying manufacturing subzones through the use of a "kan ban" or "just-in-time" (JIT) systems.
We provide all required Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) services as well as specialized subzone consultation including the development and presentation of the application to the Foreign-Trade Zone Board and negotiation with other agencies.
Our established relationships with Foreign-Trade Board officials and United States Customs Service personnel at the Port and Headquarter levels allow us to provide effective liaison services, too.
