Feasibility Study

We’ll execute a detailed, comprehensive and thorough feasibility study to determine the practicality of your company establishing a Foreign Trade Zone. The study will give you the information you’ll need to make an educated decision whether or not Foreign Trade Zone procedures are suitable for your business.

Activation and Implementation

Once you’ve determined that your business will benefit from establishing Foreign Trade Zone procedures, Outsource Trade Group will manage the activation, implementation and training processes.  Our many years of experience working with the Foreign Trade Zone Board and Customs and Border Protection will ensure a seamless and speedy transition.

FTZ Compliance

After Foreign Trade Zone activation you’ll have the option of utilizing Outsource Trade Group to make sure you maintain Foreign Trade Zone compliance and are operating in accordance with the Foreign Trade Zone regulations and procedures.




















We take the time and hassle out of the FTZ process.

Outsource Trade Group helps you manage your import/export activities in a compliant and confident manner. Our FTZ services will help you:

  • Gain a competitive edge in applying for and implementing an FTZ program
  • Minimize or eliminate costly duties and fees associated with the standard import process
  • Leverage the relationships we’ve already formed with officials in the field
  • Optimize and implement FTZ-related savings
  • Free up your internal resources to focus on more important matters
Our complete FTZ solution includes:

An assessment of the appropriate services and corresponding operational needs based on a feasibility assessment that determines the appropriate services and corresponding operational requirements.

  • Assistance with FTZ application
  • Assistance with Customs Activation and the corresponding implementation
  • An FTZ Procedures Manual and required documentation for activation
  • Assistance in selection and implementation of an inventory control system and recordkeeping system (ICRS)
  • Operational services based on recommended resources

In return, company’s experience minimized fees due to inverted product classifications, longer duties payable time frames, less time spent on the administrative process, elimination of duty through immediate product export, decreased customs processing fees, and a more efficient end-to-end supply chain.

If your company is facing high effective duty rates, experiencing slow inventory turns, re-exporting assembled and/or finished goods or service parts, and/or importing goods for distribution in the U.S., then FTZs may help you streamline your business and run more profitably.
