Imports

Foreign to You – Second Nature to Us

As the operator of the first Foreign Trade Zone in Charlotte, NC (FTZ #57) since 1979, Distribution Technology knows a thing or two about importing, exporting and transloading your raw materials and goods. We literally process hundreds of container floor loads each week, and have been doing it for decades. We'll assist you in lining up imports from overseas and then segregate pallets to transload. We'll give you the ability to improve cash flow through managing inventory not yet released to the economy with deferral of duties and quota free entry.

We can be your distribution center to handle expansion of sales into the U.S., allowing you to focus on manufacturing and sales. By providing warehousing and transportation services, we'll help you cover regional and national distribution of your products seamlessly and cost effectively.

Conveniently located close to several major ports, we can efficiently receive inbound containers, offering the unique advantage of a secure, all-weather staging area for expedited consolidation. Supported by a pre-qualified network of drayage and container companies and our team of logistics experts, we are equipped to manage any transloading scenario including rail to truck, container to truck, truck to container, or truck to rail, as well as cost effective break-bulk and less-than container load shipments.

Let our expert team in logistics design and implement a custom solution to meet your import/export transloading needs. Call us today for an analysis to see if your company can realize cash flow benefit through deferral of import duties.
