Requests for New Miami FTZ, Expanded Authority in Three Other Zones
Proposed FTZ Would be Fourth in Miami Area. The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has received an application from Miami-Dade County to establish a general-purpose FTZ under the alternative site framework at sites in Miami, Fla. The FTZB states that several firms have indicated an interest in using zone procedures for warehousing/distribution activities for a variety of products but that specific manufacturing approvals are not being sought at this time.
The proposed zone would be the fourth general-purpose FTZ for the Miami U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry; the others are FTZ 32 in Miami, FTZ 166 in Homestead and FTZ 180 in Miami. The proposed service area of the new zone would be the northern half of Miami-Dade County, Fla., and would include three magnet sites, including at the Dante B. Fascell Port of Miami.
Comments on this application are due no later than Feb. 21, 2012.
