Foreign Trade Zone
Loudoun County is also home to Foreign Trade Zone #137. Properties included within the FTZ are treated as being outside US Customs territory for purposes of tariff laws and Customs entry procedures. Duties on merchandise admitted into a zone may be deferred, reduced, or eliminated. The new Alternate Site Framework Process makes it simpler and faster for new sites to be established anywhere within 60 statute miles (or 90 driving miles) from Dulles Airport. The process could be used by a company to designate their specific property or facility as part of a FTZ.
