A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is an area within the United States which is designated by the federal government as outside of U.S. Customs territory. FTZs encourage investment in the U.S. and the creation of American jobs by allowing U.S. businesses to operate with equivalent customs treatment to business conducted off-shore. Business using FTZs can reduce customs duties and fees, and achieve logistics benefits for the import and export of goods. FTZs can be an effective part of a community economic development program.
