OH; Application for Expansion
Wednesday, February 20, 1991
An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the
Board) by the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority, grantee of FTZ 40,
requesting authority to expand its general-purpose foreign-trade zone in
Cleveland, Ohio, within the Cleveland Customs port of entry. The application
was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as
amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part
400). It was formally filed on January 30, 1991.
FTZ 40 was approved by the Board on September 29, 1978 (Board Order 135, 43
FR 46886, 10/11/78), and expanded in 1982 (Board Order 194, 47 FR 27579,
6/25/82). The zone currently involves a site (30 acres) at the Port of
Cleveland and a site (175 acres) adjacent to Cleveland Hopkins
International Airport. The Port Authority is now requesting authority to
expand its zone site at the port to include the entire Port of Cleveland
complex (94 acres) on Lake Erie at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River.
