WTDC Goes Green:
Recycling Program &
Paperless FTZ Files
Did you know that Foreign Trade Zones are no longer required to keep paper
backups on-site for each Zone admission? WTDC keeps track of all the
necessary documentation within its Warehouse Management System and backs up
data to the cloud. WTDC also rolled out our new recycling program at the
beginning of November. We negotiated with Waste Management to replace one
of our regular trash pickups with a recycle pick up. WTDC employees and
tenants are encouraged to use the recycle bins placed throughout the
offices and common areas. WTDC had previously cut down on paper waste by
reducing printed materials for meetings and by using non-disposable cups
for our morning coffee. It feels good going green!

Logistics Management Magazine: FTZ Update: New tariffs drive demand for
As the U.S. government implements new tariffs, many logistics managers are
looking to Foreign Trade Zones for solutions. \"With the quiet compliance of
the U.S. government, shippers can import goods into the zone with reduced
duties on an individual basis,\" says Patrick Burnson of Logistics
Management. Click [6]here or below to read the entire article.
There are a number of products, such as some electronics from China, that
are subject to new 25% tariffs. Exporters are using FTZs instead of passing
this direct cost on to their customers.
Of course, we at WTDC have been banging the FTZ drum for years and we are
excited to have so many more companies interested in learning about and
managing in FTZs!
