 Directions

Port Milwaukee’s Trade Team will provide an overview of what the Port is, current activities taking place and how City of Milwaukee businesses can grow by fuller utilization of the transportation assets on Jones Island. Learn about the benefits of shipping versus rail versus trucking, as well as the available resources that can help your business increasingly reach domestic and world markets.

Gain insight into what a Foreign Trade Zone is and how your business can benefit by implementing an FTZ. Learn how to work with the Port and U.S. Customs to defer applicable duties, taxes and fees at your facility/warehouse.

Port Milwaukee’s mission is to enhance the overall economic and social environment of the City and region by stimulating trade, business and employment. The Port is strategically located on the western shores of Lake Michigan and in the industrial center of the US.  As the region’s multi modal distribution and logistics hub, the Port connects local manufacturers, growers and producers to domestic and world markets via the St. Lawrence Seaway and Mississippi River inland system.

As grantee of Foreign Trade Zone No. 41, the FTZ provides benefits to regional companies by leveraging substantial cost savings on customs, duties and taxes on imported goods.
