FTZ Administration

The responsibilities of managing day-to-day FTZ operations can be challenging whether your company is an importer acting as its own FTZ Operator or you’re a third party logistics provider (3PL) serving as an activated FTZ Operator for importers/users.

Under its valid Type 4 FTZ Operator’s bond, the FTZ Operator is responsible to U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) for ensuring that the FTZ is administered in compliance with the CBP FTZ Regulations (19 CFR Part 146) and that personnel performing FTZ administration duties are trained and knowledgeable.

There is no “one size fits all” solution or approach to meeting the regulatory obligations of an FTZ Operator. Day-to-day FTZ administration responsibilities can be performed by internal or outsourced personnel—or a combination of both—depending on a host of factors.

In general, we believe training and utilizing primarily internal resources for FTZ administration is the optimum choice.

Post-Training Support

Once your employees have completed our FTZ Training Academy, they are certainly not on their own. Our professionals remain committed and available to provide periodic assistance with any and all ongoing FTZ administration challenges you may encounter. The KEY is that our assistance should be necessary only periodically since YOUR own employees will have the tools and resources needed to identify and resolve problems on their own, allowing your company to avoid significant ongoing FTZ administration costs other than your own trained professionals.
