U.S. Customs & Compliance Office in San Jose, California

Why San Jose?

Though it’s most commonly known as the “Capital of Silicon Valley” due to the fact that it is home to the headquarters of many major tech companies, San Jose, CA, is also a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ), with jurisdiction over many surrounding counties. This designation makes San Jose a hub for international trade; in fact, according to a recent Congressional report, the San Jose FTZ accounted for $10–$25 billion in activity in 2019, alone.

The strength of San Jose’s economic climate, as well as its abundant employment opportunities and coastal location just an hour south of San Francisco, has proven a major draw. San Jose currently boasts a population of over 1 million; the city is also home to multiple higher education institutions, contributing to a strong, highly educated labor market.
