Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has authorized production under zone procedures at the Mercedes Benz USA LLC facility within FTZ 50 in Long Beach, Calif., which is used for accessorizing passenger motor vehicles.

The FTZ Board has also authorized production under zone procedures at the syncreon Logistics (USA) LLC facility within FTZ 202 in Los Angeles, which is used for the kitting of cameras and accessories into retail packages on behalf of GoPro Inc. The initial request indicated that foreign inputs included in certain textile categories (classified within HTSUS subheadings 4202.92 and 6307.90) will be admitted to the zone in privileged foreign status, thereby precluding inverted tariff benefits on such items.
