This major manufacturer makes rubber products for a wide range of uses, including supermarket check-out counters, package handling, and exercise equipment. The company imports raw material from overseas into the port in Norfolk, VA. So we used ZYL customer service resources to reduce administrative time. On the customer’s behalf, ZYL handled filing of monthly FTZ 214 documents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Rubber products manufacturer wanted to stage this raw material at a warehouse close to key manufacturing sites in Eastern NC – ideally a warehouse with foreign trade zone (FTZ) status. ZYL Logistics fit the bill on all fronts and the companies have enjoyed a successful partnership since 2008.
ZYL stores material in its general purpose FTZ in Eastern NC. Since FTZs are considered outside U.S. Customs territory, there can be an immediate movement of goods to ZYL’s FTZ, delaying the payment of Customs duty and excise taxes until the product leaves the facility. To support unplanned activity spikes, ZYL can recruit trained workers at a moment’s notice since four other Kanban warehouses are located very close to the FTZ. This enables a very responsive inbound logistics solution without the need for outside temporary labor.
