Verde Fulfillment USA

Verde Fulfillment USA has become an active Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ). This designation allows clients to import goods into the US without paying duties & taxes until they are ready to sell the goods in the US market. Foreign merchandise may be moved into a foreign trade zone at any time for storage, light-assembly, light-manufacturing, quality control, testing, relabeling, repackaging, cleaning and processing.

“This was a twenty-seven-month process working with US Customs and local municipalities to finally make it a reality,” stated Greg McRoberts, President of Verde Fulfillment USA. “The benefits for our client base, or any brands, are incredible, yet using a foreign trade zone is largely unknown to most people.”

The purpose of a foreign trade zone, which was originally established in 1934, is to encourage foreign commerce. Ways to accomplish this are by giving brands a way to import their goods without paying duties and taxes until they are ready. “This can save on cash flow crunches for smaller brands in a big way,” continued McRoberts, “and since your goods bypass US Customs coming into the US, you are not subject to import quotas.”

Some examples of ways to utilize a foreign trade zone are:

*Repackaging goods that need a packaging change required by law or retailers

*Retagging goods that were incorrectly tagged at the factory

*Assembly of individual SKUs into a new SKU with a new lower import duty

*Performing quality control on your goods and import only the goods that passed

*Importing goods under quota restrictions, then be first to import goods once restrictions lifted

*Manufacture your goods early to avoid delays, then import from FTZ only when ready

*The list goes on and on…
