Foreign Trade Zones

Kansas City ranks first in the country in Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) space, featuring several general purpose FTZ sites totaling more than 10,000 acres of space for storage and/or processing. In addition, four manufacturing subzones are used in the assembly of automobiles, automobile parts, and agricultural chemicals. The Kansas City trade zones handle more volume than those of Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, and St. Louis.

The trade zones are under the authority of Greater Kansas City Foreign Trade Zone, Inc. Kansas City was the first inland area to be granted the right to operate a FTZ and the first administered by a private, not-for-profit corporation. In the early 1970s, Kansas City pioneered what is now referred to as the "distributed" FTZ, which includes several zones and subzones throughout the area. Companies can consider the advantages of several area sites on both sides of the state line.

The available storage space in the zone sites includes modern, above ground warehouses and energy efficient underground storage. Companies in Kansas City FTZs take advantage of outstanding air, rail, truck, and barge transportation systems.
