Swafford Transport & Warehouse Announces Activation of Foreign-Trade Zone

Swafford Transport & Warehouse, a 28 year veteran of providing third-party logistics services in warehousing, distribution and supply-chain management, announces the activation of foreign-trade zone (“FTZ”) operations at its facility located at 1630 Old Highway 14 South in Greer, South Carolina.  The initial activation covers 80,000 square feet of their facility which is centrally located in the Greenville / Spartanburg area, with the ports of Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA only three and five hours away, respectively.

Swafford Transport & Warehouse integrates their in house state-of-the-art Warehouse Management system with a foreign-trade zone inventory control system combining cutting-edge warehouse management with FTZ operations.  This allows Swafford to leverage the benefits of duty deferral, import transaction cost-savings and duty elimination on exports giving clients the opportunity to reduce overhead and increase profit.

With potential to expand to 21 acres in authorized space Swafford can offer FTZ services to its existing and future clients operating in international trade, while enhancing the growth of the Greenville / Spartanburg region.
