Free Trade Zones

La Plata free trade zone (ZFLP): the inauguration of the La Plata free trade zone on January 2, 1997 brought about a significant change in the international trade of products in the country. An important advantage of this zone is its proximity to the city of Buenos Aires (40 miles south of Buenos Aires) and to Ezeiza International Airport. This free trade zone also has its port, with 500 meters of dock, and has strategic location linking this free trade zone to the big cities of Argentina. It also has the availability of all the necessary equipment to move cargoes, which provide importers a logistic service for the distribution of products inside and outside the country.

There is special container storage area on the territory of La Plata free trade zone.
