Webinar: Business Case for Free Trade Zones

Posted by Annika Helmrich on Wed, Oct, 27 2010 @ 3:00 AM
As companies turn to the supply chain to wring out additional cost savings, one of the most exciting areas of value creation is in the area of Foreign Trade Zones (FTZs).

FTZs were established in 1934 to stimulate economic growth by allowing companies to operate in a specially designated area, outside the Customs territory of the United States. Now, seventy five years later, companies are still generating tremendous returns by reducing or eliminating duty payments, and minimizing transactional costs.

This webinar will help you build your business case for an FTZ as well as present a case study of best practices in the application, activation and on-going administration of a zone.

What you will learn:

  • The overall process to apply for and certify an FTZ
  • The key business benefit areas to present to senior management for approval
  • Best practices in on-going administration of your FTZ
  • How an FTZ fits in an overall Global Trade Management deployment

If you’re busy that day, sign up anyway. You can play back the scheduled broadcast anytime you like.
