Foreign Trade Zone Map
The Rockford Area EDC administers FTZ #176 (Foreign Trade Zone #176) on behalf of the Chicago Rockford International Airport.
The FTZ program is a partnership of the U.S. government and private sector importers. Each approved location is specially-designated area and considered to be outside of U.S. Customs territory. For that reason, when cargo arrives in the country for an FTZ operator, it does not immediately clear Customs. The cargo receives preferential treatment with duties deferred, reduced or eliminated. In addition, there are supply chain, inventory control and other savings available through the FTZ program.
