Long Beach to hold FTZ Workshop

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Long Beach and the Foreign Trade Association on October 18 will host a “Maximizing Your Business Through Foreign Trade Zones” workshop.

The event will include industry and regulatory experts who will talk about how businesses may benefit from using foreign trade zones, which could help qualifying companies lower, defer or even eliminate the cost of customs duties.

The Long Beach port is part of Foreign Trade Zone 50 (FTZ-50), which encompasses Orange County, western San Bernardino County and most of Los Angeles County.

Admission is $60 until October 5; then it jumps to $75 for pre-registration and $80 if businesses register for the workshop on site. Lunch will be included.

The workshop will take place from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Port of Long Beach Interim Administrative Offices, 4801 Airport Plaza Drive, Long Beach 90815.
