Fleet Yards’ president Dan Otting has stated that the new Fleet Yards Kearny location is in a high traffic area of vital importance to many of its clients. South Kearney holds Foreign Trade Zone status, which greatly increases the desirability of being located there. The Foreign Trade Zone status provides companies located in the zone with lower insurance costs, the ability to shorten transit time for their deliveries by removing delays from U.S. Customs clearances, and the ability to either defer duty rates or eliminate them entirely if the goods are reshipped out of the country.
Another significant attraction for Fleet Yards in deciding to open Fleet Yards Kearney is the proximity of the new yard to the CSX Kearny Yard. CSX carries a variety of commodities, including consumer products, automobiles, food and agriculture products, coal and chemicals. The CSX yard brings a heavy traffic of intermodal truckers into the Kearny area and the new Fleet Yards Kearny lot should help alleviate some of the associated logistics problems caused by the traffic flow.
