By Boat/Port: Fond du Lac County is one of twelve counties serviced by the Port of Milwaukee’s Foreign Trade Zone # 41. A Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) is an approved area within the United States, in or near a U.S. Customs port of entry, which is considered outside the U.S. Customs territory. Certain types of merchandise can be imported into a FTZ without going through the formal Customs entry procedures or paying import duties. Duties and excise taxes are due at the time of transfer from the FTZ to U.S. commerce for consumption. Businesses can lower and defer their costs and improve supply chain efficiencies.
