WTDC’s Foreign Trade Zone 281 in Miami offers freight forwarding services to and from Colombia or the US, supervising import/export logistics for a variety of clients in both countries.
With 12 competitive FTZ options, Colombia offers several benefits to businesses involved in the production and distribution of goods there or in the US. Geographic areas established to promote industrial processing of goods and services, FTZs in Colombia facilitate largescale product transportation with no limits on serving the domestic market once the import duties are paid.
Colombia is the only nation in South America with coasts on the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, promoting multinational trading through basic geography. A gateway to Central and North America for the rest of the southern continent, billions worth of materials travel in, out, and through Colombia, making it a literal funnel of commerce in the region.
Colombia’s 12 FTZs are in Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, Cartagena, Quindio, Santa Marta, Cúcuta, Barranquilla, Cartagena, Cali, and Arauca, providing a variety of exchange options from several key locations to WTDC warehouses in the US. Though national or foreign judicial entities established in Colombia may legally utilize them, FTZs are regulated under a special custom, exchange, and fiscal regime that encourage air or ocean freight forwarding in South America.
