These services are valuable to companies importing and exporting domestic and international goods. Each of the eight suites is equipped with both a loading dock and a ramp.
Container Freight Station (CFS)
Our CFS warehouse specializes in the consolidation and deconsolidation of imports and exports.
Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ)
Foreign Trade Zones (FTZ) are designated areas in U.S. Ports of Entry where foreign and domestic products are considered outside U.S. Customs Territory. FTZ #275 at LAN covers eight counties including Clinton, Eaton, Gratiot, Ingham, Isabella, Jackson, Livingston, and Shiawassee.
Importing and exporting companies benefit from using foreign trade zones.
These benefits include:
- Improved Cash Flow: By delaying, reducing, or eliminating duties, money can be available for other needs.
- Logistical Flexibility: Goods may be transferred duty free from U.S. ports of arrival to a FTZ or between FTZs. If the products are re-exported, no duty is paid. Products made overseas for overseas markets may be brought into a FTZ for storage or consolidation with other products, allowing distribution of complete shipments to customers.
- Duty Reduction: In many cases, duties are higher for parts than for finished products. Companies can use an FTZ to import parts duty-free, assemble a product, and then only be required to pay duty on the final product (vs. all the individual parts).
- Lower Taxes: Goods in an FTZ normally avoid federal excise taxes.
