Foreign Trade Zone

Reduce your cost of doing business internationally through the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ #119).

Hennepin County is within the Alternative Site Framework (ASF) service area, meaning businesses within the county can create a subzone at their existing location. Qualifying companies that import and export components and goods may defer and reduce duty payments, save on import processing fees, and make duty free exports.

Contact the Hennepin County Foreign Trade Zone representative to learn more.
