This contractual, fee-based service allows the shipment of goods to and from an FTZ without using other transportation providers. Using UPS as a single source enables importers and exporters to increase visibility and tracking. The service also reduces the chance for errors and costs associated with utilizing multiple transportation providers.Importers will choose FTZ Facilitator Import to direct shipments to be delivered in-bond to a designated FTZ, rather than being cleared through customs.
