A U.S. Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) is a secure area located at or near a U.S. port of entry that is considered outside of U.S. Customs Territory. The FTZ program was created by Congress in 1934 to stimulate growth by deferring, reducing or eliminating customs duties.
The Port of Hueneme is grantee of U.S. Foreign-Trade Zone #205. Established in 1994, the zone offers a wide range of manufacturing, processing and warehousing activities.
Alternative Site Framework (ASF) makes available up to 2,000 acres for fast track activation. The Zone is capable of accommodating storage and light assembly activities within its boundaries, under a duty-deferred status. There are four sites totaling approximately 882 acres.
The Foreign Trade Zone Board can activate in as short as 30 days, saving you time and money.
