Foreign-Trade Zones

Advantages of a Foreign-Trade Zone

The Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) program offers unique benefits that can reduce importing costs and lead times associated with international sourcing. Companies that qualify will have an opportunity to reduce, defer and sometimes eliminate duties.

FTZ sites within Summit County are part of FTZ #181, and are administered by the Development Finance Authority of Summit County in conjunction with the Grantee, the Northeast Ohio Trade & Economic Consortium (NEOTEC).
