Did you know that utilizing a Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) can significantly reduce total landed costs? The Foreign Trade Zone Act was passed by the U.S. Government in 1939 to facilitate global trade and enhance the competitiveness of U.S. companies. With restricted access, an FTZ such as TVI Logistics, US Foreign Trade Zone #70, is treated by U.S. Customs as if it is located outside the United States. If you import components, light assembly, sequencing, re-packaging and other manufacturing operations can be done in the FTZ, then the company has the option to pay the often less expensive or duty-free finished product duty rate as opposed to the component duty rate. In addition, if a company re-exports the finished product, duty fees are not charged on the component materials.
Other potential savings include weekly Customs entries versus transaction fees per entry, avoiding duties on imported materials that become scrap as well as a host of administrative savings and efficiencies.
TVI Logistics is a remarkable woman/minority/veteran-owned Warren-based company that operates Macomb County’s one and only public FTZ. Its services include:
This company earned recognition by DIV500 as the #9 Veteran owned company in the US and it recently formed a unique partnership with RUSH Trucking, owned by Automotive's very own Andra Rush, to efficiently provide OEM, Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers with additional transportation and supply chain management services. They optimize logistics operations, eliminate waste, and conveniently expedite import/export activity.
TVI Logistics is a Woman/Minority/Service-disabled Veteran-owned Enterprise that was founded in 1992 by Constance Blair (See her Profile on Bloomberg). Blair is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and served during the Vietnam War. After her service, Blair worked as a consultant in management, marketing and designs and served as liaison at the Pentagon between U.S. Army and Air Force staff as well as Department of Defense officials. She supported the Army Mobilization and Readiness Division and has a solid history in the area of logistics, transportation and inventory control. For 14 years she also served as President of the National Defense Industrial Association. The company has been widely recognized as a top business by INC Magazine and Diversity Business and was recently named the 2016 “Best Warehouse & Distribution Management Company in Michigan” by Acquisition International’s Global Mobility, Immigration & Logistics Awards.
“Tell me about your needs, and we will build a customized logistics solution that will save you money and time,” said Blair. The team is pleased to offer an opportunity for area companies to learn more about its services at an upcoming Exporting 101 workshop. The event will feature business leaders who are already using FTZ services as well as trade experts from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Baker Tilly and others. The workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 18 at TVI Logistics in Warren.

Does your company import or export materials or goods? Are you struggling to navigate the many rules and regulations surrounding this type of activity? Did you know that a Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) can help you streamline the process while minimizing costs and saving staff resources?
To help business owners learn more about these subjects, the Macomb County Department of Planning & Economic Development will host Exporting 101 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 18 at TVI Logistics’ location, 25200 Malvina Avenue, Warren, 48089. Click here to register.
FTZs were created by the U.S. Congress to foster international trade and enhance the global competitiveness of U.S. companies. Treated by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection as if it were located outside the United States, an FTZ can offer significant savings on import duties for both components and consumer-ready merchandise.
Other significant benefits of FTZs are realized for companies that re-export finished products or deal with materials that are deemed scrap upon their arrival in the United States. The savings are so great that many large corporations operate their own designated FTZs. For smaller companies without the resources to take on this type of endeavor, TVI Logistics of Warren offers a solution. According to TVI Logistics' CEO, Constance Blair, “If your company is paying an average of $485 or more per week in merchandise processing fees, you might want to consider utilizing our services to save time and money.”
“Partnering with TVI Logistics ensures that our business continues to exceed our customers’ expectations and meet our evolving needs,” said Donna Yost, CEO of The Life Chest™. “TVI’s white glove service, packaging, and assembling services are integral to maintaining our brand and customized product line.”
Exporting 101 will feature business leaders like Yost who are already using FTZ services as well as trade experts from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and Baker Tilly. For more information, visit www.MacombBusiness.com or call: (586) 469-5285.

Whether you like to believe it or not, the supposed new car from Apple is a real prospect and the Cupertino-based consumer electronics empire is serious about making it happen.
They’re so serious in fact that a new development from German media reports Magna Steyr, the company responsible for building various automobiles and trucks, as well as a major parts supplier, will build the new Apple Car.
Magna Steyr is most notable for being the firm that’s been contracted to build the Mercedes-Benz Gelandewagen and Unimog trucks since the beginning. Details are sparse, but Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung said around 15 to 20 “top-class” candidates from the German automotive industry will be coming together to work on the project. Their identities were withheld, but the team has vetted backgrounds in sales, software, engineering and hardware.
The report also said Apple will first focus on launching their new car through rental and car-sharing programs, which supplements for Apple’s currently nonexistent dealership network and service facilities.
From what we also know from various reports and rumors, Apple’s iCar will not have autonomous driving technology available at launch.
