Foreign Trade Zone

Enjoy the benefits of a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ): duty deferral or elimination, tax and tariff relief, and increased security with lowered insurance costs.

Customs entry procedures do not apply even though FTZs are within the territory and jurisdiction of the United States. For more information visit the U.S. Enforcement and Compliance website.

FTZ 126 is located in northwest Nevada, centered off the International Customs Port in Reno, Nevada. Our zone has been approved for Alternative Site Framework (ASF), providing maximum flexibility to potential zone users. Property covered includes southern Washoe County, all of Storey, Carson, and Douglas Counties, northern Lyon County, and western Churchill County; roughly 5000 square miles of available FTZ space. ASF designation allows potential users the flexibility of location, as well as quick approval for zone activity. We are the designated administrator on behalf of the Grantee, the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN).
