Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has approved an application from the Brownsville Navigation District, grantee of FTZ 62, requesting authority to reorganize this zone under the alternative site framework with a service area of Cameron County, Texas, within and adjacent to the Brownsville U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of 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 standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone project.
