Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has received an application from the FTZ Corporation of Southern Pennsylvania, grantee of FTZ 147, requesting authority to reorganize the zone to expand its service area under the FTZ Board’s 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 “usage-driven” FTZ sites for operators/users located within a grantee’s “service area” in the context of the FTZ Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a general-purpose zone project.

The grantee’s service area under the ASF would be expanded to include Adams, Fulton, Juniata, Lebanon and Perry counties. The proposed expanded service area is adjacent to the Harrisburg Customs and Border Protection Port of Entry. Comments on this application are due by Sept. 25, while rebuttal comments may be submitted by Oct. 12.
