JACKSONVILLE, Fla.- JAXPORT partner North Florida Warehouse FTZ, a division of JZ Expedited Logistics, has been granted permission to operate Foreign Trade Zone No. 64’s first outdoor storage facility. The 3.7-acre facility is located minutes from JAXPORT’s North Jacksonville terminals and offers flexible short- and long-term outdoor storage options for a variety of cargo including vehicles, high and heavy, tracked units, project and over-dimensional cargo, containers, breakbulk and more.
The federal FTZ program helps importers efficiently manage cash flow and save a significant amount of money through streamlined U.S. Customs clearance and other efficiencies.
“Options are the name of the game,” said Lisa Diaz, JAXPORT Manager, FTZ and Logistics Services. “The ability to offer FTZ outdoor storage to our importers for the first time is a great selling point.”
“We pride ourselves on providing what our customers need most and this outdoor FTZ facility fits the bill,” said Robert Fox, CEO of JZ Expedited Companies.
North Florida Warehouse FTZ says the facility offers customers flexible storage terms, plus 24/7 access to their cargo utilizing the latest security technology. The facility is adjacent to the company’s 32,000 square-foot North Jacksonville warehouse, which also operates within FTZ No. 64.
