FTZ # 26 Service Area

If a company is located within an approved FTZ Service Area, it may qualify for an expedited application process through the FTZ Board. “Usage-Driven” applications can be approved for warehousing/distribution operations by the FTZ Board in 30 days. The review and approval process for operations involving manufacturing or production usually takes 3 – 6 months.

A Service Area must be within 60 miles or 90 minutes driving time of the outermost limits of a legally defined U.S. Customs Port of Entry. In Georgia, there are three Ports of Entry located in Atlanta, Savannah and Brunswick. Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone (GFTZ) is responsible for the administration of the FTZ #26 Service Area, based on the Atlanta Port of Entry. GFTZ’s Service Area spans throughout much of Georgia, and includes the following counties:
