Recent trade and tariff disputes, are set to impact Michigan manufacturers and businesses as a result companies are looking for cost-saving options. This FTZ offers an alternative to help local businesses thrive in the impending economic downturn.
STEWART Industries Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) could save business threatened by tariff wars up to 80% in reduced tariffs. Located in Michigan, and with 20 years of manufacturing experience, STEWART understands those in the community who have been affected by the economy's changes.
STEWART Industries FTZ is unique as it allows those who use their services to save even more money. As sub-assemblers, STEWART employees inspect the parts and pieces within the FTZ for defects. Those items which don’t pass inspection will be destroyed, meaning the customer won’t be subject to its customs or duty charges.
A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is an area that is considered to be outside of the commerce of the United States for customs purposes only. These are areas where imported goods can be stored, distributed, processed, and used without being subject to customs duty. FTZs provide customs-related advantages. Specifically, Foreign Trade Zones help U.S. companies compete in the global marketplace by eliminating, deferring, or reducing duties and potentially reducing other costs.
