JAXPORT’s Foreign Trade Zone now includes first-of-its-kind 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.
JAXPORT partner North Florida Warehouse FTZ, a division of JZ Expedited Logistics, Jacksonville, Fla., received permission to operate what is said to be 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.
“Options are the name of the game,” says Lisa Diaz, JAXPORT manager, foreign-trade zone (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,” says Robert Fox, chief executive officer of JZ Expedited Cos.
The facility offers flexible storage terms and 24/7 access to cargo utilizing the latest security technology. The facility is adjacent to the company’s 32,000-square-foot North Jacksonville, Fla., warehouse, which also operates within FTZ No. 64.
