Foreign Trade Zone

With its "Crossroads of America" location, Indianapolis offers ideal distribution advantages to manufacturers, cargo and freight forwarders, and other companies with shipping and receiving requirements.In Zone Logo

Indianapolis International Airport (IND) is home to the second largest FedEx Express operation in the world. According to Airports Council International North America, IND is the nation’s eighth largest cargo facility; internationally, it ranks 22nd in the world. The Indianapolis Airport Authority (IAA) is actively engaged in partnering with local, national, and international businesses, freight forwarders, and cargo airlines to pursue new services and/or streamlined shipping operations. With these logistical advantages, it is not surprising central Indiana is home to 18 designated foreign trade subzones.

INzone: Greater Indianapolis Foreign Trade Zone

INzone is central Indiana's foreign trade zone (FTZ)—a national economic incentives program designed to enhance foreign trade. Products that enter INzone may not be subject to U.S. Customs duties until they're released for use in the United States. If goods come into the INzone and are then exported outside of the U.S., they may never be subject to U.S. Customs duties.

Whether you are a large company or a small operation, INzone can save you time and money if you engage in any business internationally. Bring your goods into INzone and we can work with you to delay, reduce, or even eliminate import tariffs.
