Colon Free Zone

Colon Free Zone (CFZ) is the premier free trade zone in the western hemisphere. Created in June 1948, the Colon Free Zone has served for 63 years as the major trading center for Latin America and the Caribbean. Its operations began in a segregated area of 35 hectares originally in Colon Down Town. Now, this free trade zone is divided into nine different sectors totaling 1064.58 hectares for exhibition, storage and warehousing, logistics services, and other potential areas for expansion.

The main objective of Colon Free Zone is to promote international trade under a tax exempted work frame where commercial activities are wholesale oriented, and logistics and banking activities support them.
