Foreign Trade Zone

Lincoln has a 2,000 acre allotment in a three-county area designated under the Foreign Trade Zone’s Alternative Site Framework program. FTZ 59 is administered by the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce. A foreign trade zone is a designated location in the United States where companies can use special procedures that help encourage US activity and value added by allowing delayed or reduced duty payments on foreign merchandise, as well as other savings and logistical benefits.

The Lincoln zone has three sub zone users, Kawasaki, CNH in Grand Island and Cabelas in Sidney. The three-county area eligible for general purpose zone activity includes Lancaster, Seward and Otoe Counties. A 372-acre magnet site was established in 2011 and is located generally at the Lincoln Airpark West site.

The program is administered federally by the Foreign Trade Zone Board through the U.S. Department of Commerce. For more information, contact Pat Haverty, 402-436-2379.
