Did You Know??
In a Bonded Warehouse, you are required to pay Harbor Maintenance Fee on each import. HMF is currently .125% of the merchandise value.
Did you know that in a Foreign Trade Zone you consolidate the HMF payments quarterly?
Paying HMF quarterly is a significant cash flow strategy and cost-saving measure for importers. Consolidating paperwork through electronic filing is just one of the many reasons companies are working with our FTZ.
Congratulations to Philippe Dennery, Freight Auditor, our March Employee of the Month!
