Supply Chain Responsiveness

FTZ optimization, cost reduction, & benefits

GEODIS FTZs provide multiple opportunities to significantly reduce duties and costs:


  • Duty deferral, reduction, or elimination as duties are only payable upon import into the US marketplace from an FTZ


  • Inverted tariff relief allows for lower duty rates on foreign inputs or finished products manufactured in an FTZ


  • Entry savings through weekly filings that reduce merchandise processing fees


  • Tax Reduction as products held in an FTZ may be exempt from state and inventory taxes


  • Re-export FTZ exemption means that duty is eliminated on in-bond exports out of an FTZ—duties are also eliminated for merchandise that is scrapped, wasted, destroyed, or consumed in an FTZ

Brian Riley SVP customs trade services

“For GEODIS, customs brokerage is an end-to-end product. It doesn’t matter what a client is bringing in, we want to give them a complete service. That extends from daily customs clearance transactions to trade services, or managing an FTZ. We talk to agencies across the federal government and get all of the licenses and clearance that our clients need. They don’t need to worry about all the individual aspects of it, we can take care of that.”
