Storage agreements at the FTZ#9 are referred to as “zone lots” which are generated by the customs form, CF214, when you bring your goods in to be stored. Storage rates vary according to status and classification of the merchandise, and based on a per-cubic-foot volume. The minimum charge for storage and handling in a zone lot is $30.00 per month. On the last business day of each month, the FTZ calculates the remaining volume in each zone lot and generates a statement.

*Importers are responsible for payment of Harbor Maintenance Fees. The Harbor Maintenance Fees (HMF) was created by the Water Resource Act of 1986. The fee is intended to require those who benefit from maintenance of U.S. ports and harbors to share the cost of the maintenance. DOT Harbor Maintenance Fee (HMF) is only collected on imports, domestic shipments, Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) admissions, and passengers. They are required to pay .125% of the value of the commercial cargo shipped through identified ports. HMF is not collected on cargo imported or transported via air.
