TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Georgia Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., (GFTZ), grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone 26 in Atlanta, Georgia, requesting authority to
reorganize and relocate its zone project. The application was submitted

U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It was
formally filed on August 27, 1987.
On January 17, 1977, the Board authorized GFTZ to establish a foreign-
trade zone project in the Atlanta Port of Entry area (Board Order 115, 42

industrial park in Shenandoah, Coweta County, Georgia, some 23 miles
southwest of Atlanta. Zone operations at the site were suspended in
The reorganization would involve relocating the zone to a 300-acre site
adjacent to Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport in Clayton and Fulton
Counties. The site is bounded by I-75, I-285 and U.S. Highway 19-41, and on
the east by the airport's runways. The site, known as the Atlanta Tradeport,
is owned by the Wilma Tradeport Joint Venture, a Georgia general
partnership, and will be operated by one of its subsidiaries, Wilma Foreign-
Trade Zone, Inc. No approvals for manufacturing operations are being sought
at this time.
