Foreign Trade Zone Alternative Site Framework

Foreign Trade Zone
The City of Morgan Hill has been part of the service area of Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) #18 since the City of San Jose received the designation in 1974.  The Foreign Trade Zone #18 has moved to the new Alternative Site Framework (ASF) which allow companies in the service area (City of Morgan Hill) to access the business benefits of a Foreign Trade sub-zone designation through a streamlined application and review process by the Foreign Trade Zone's Board. Under the new ASF framework, an application is generally approved by the FTZ Board for warehousing and no more than 120-days manufacturing activities.
