The Port of Grays Harbor, the largest deepwater port on the coast of Washington State, offers its customers benefits of a general purpose US Foreign Trade Zone -- FTZ #173. A total of 587 acres (238 hectares) of land, buildings, located throughout Grays Harbor County, are available for use by companies engaged in international trade.

A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is a designation granted to property which, when activated, allows business to be conducted on that property as if it were located outside of US Customs Territory. It allows businesses to store, process and manipulate foreign goods within the Zone, while duty paid on the goods is deferred until they leave the Zone. If goods are brought into a Zone and exported to another country, duty is avoided, because the goods never formally entered US Customs jurisdiction.

There are many special ways an FTZ can benefit your company. We welcome the chance to answer your questions and work with you to set up FTZ procedures tailored to meet your needs. Four separate land areas are included in the Port of Grays Harbor's official Foreign Trade Zone designation.
