What are the types of Foreign-Trade Zones?

There are two types of foreign-trade zones - General Purpose Zones and Subzones. General Purpose Zones are usually an industrial park or port complex whose facilities are available for use by the general public. Subzones are sponsored by General Purpose Zones and are normally single-purpose sites for operations that cannot be feasibly moved to or accommodated in a General Purpose Zone.
