Bangor Foreign Trade Zone No. 58

Bangor Foreign TradeA foreign trade zone is an authorized area, considered outside of U.S. Customs territory, but under Customs supervision. Foreign merchandise transported into a zone is considered in international commerce which delays formal Customs entry procedures and payment of duties until the merchandise enters U.S. Customs territory for domestic consumption.
