FTZ Actions for Florida, Georgia and Florida Zones
The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has recently taken the following actions.
Reorganization and Expansion Application by Florida FTZ Approved. The FTZ Board has approved an application by the City of Tampa, grantee of FTZ 79, requesting authority to reorganize and expand the zone under the alternative site framework. The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of general-purpose zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new subzones or “usage-driven” FTZ sites for operators/users located within a grantee’s service area in the context of the FTZB’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for zone. The grantee’s service area will be the counties of Hillsborough and Polk and the city of Tampa, within and adjacent to the Tampa Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
Expansion Application by Georgia FTZ Approved. The FTZ Board has approved an application by the World Trade Center Savannah LLC, grantee of FTZ 104, requesting authority to expand the service area of the zone to include Richmond and Columbia counties, adjacent to the Columbia, South Carolina Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
Authority for Maine FTZ Reissued. The FTZ Board has approved an application by the Maine International Foreign Trade Zone Inc., grantee of FTZ 186, requesting reissuance of the grant of authority for said zone to the City of Waterville. As a result, the City of Waterville is now recognized as the new grantee of FTZ 186.
