Foreign Trade Zone

Reduce Duty and Overhead Costs

U.S. Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) help a company considerably increase its competitiveness through proper management, elimination, or reduction of customs duties, taxes, and tariffs. The process can be very onerous to manage manually, especially in high-volume operations. Our FTZ module eases this burden by integrating with the OCR EASE™ import and export modules to efficiently bring finished products into the U.S. or for foreign commerce. FTZ also integrates with third party inventory management software so that companies can file the necessary forms with U.S. Customs.
