The Foreign Trade Zone Advantage
December 2015 marks the completion of WTDC’s third year as a Foreign Trade Zone Operator. As the first active Operator in PortMiami’s FTZ 281 in 2012, WTDC has been at the forefront of offering FTZ warehousing and consulting services in line with the FTZ Board’s new ASF guidelines. We have consulted for 15 companies to attain their own FTZ status, 2 of whom will be newly approved Operators in first quarter 2016, and we are currently working with a 16th company.
WTDC’s unique stance as both Operator and Consultant allows us to deliver a turnkey solution including application, implementation, compliance, software assistance, and personnel training.
