JAXPORT partner North Florida Warehouse FTZ, a division of JZ Expedited Companies, today celebrated the grand opening of 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. “There is a great need for outdoor FTZ storage and we want to be the market leader in this region,” said Robert Fox, CEO of JZ Expedited Companies.

“There are no limitations with this facility,” said Lisa Diaz, JAXPORT Manager, FTZ and Logistics Services. “It is equipped to handle all types of cargo providing importers a tremendous advantage when shipping through JAXPORT.”

North Florida Warehouse FTZ says the facility offers customers 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.
