FROM THE CEO
Shipments up at 2010 midpoint Ports handle 11 percent more tonnage than start of 2009
Chief Executive Officer, Ports of Indiana
The Port of Indiana-Mount Vernon is expected to have another high-performing year in 2010. Overall the three ports have seen an increase of 11 percent in shipments this year.
Tonnage at the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor increased 63 percent over the same period last year. The port is a hub for unusual project cargoes.

We all have our favorite economic recovery indicators that we look to for a signal that the U.S. economy may be making a turn for improvement. Examples are new business orders, inventory levels, unemployment numbers and production output. In addition to those indicators, those of us in the port business are constantly checking the ‘pulse’ of tonnage that criss-crosses our docks, rail and roads. During the first six months of 2010, shipments grew by 360,000 tons at the Ports of Indiana over the prior year. Those tons reflect a cross-section of industries that make their home at the Ports of Indiana. From agricultural products, to bulk commodities like salt, limestone and coal, to windmill components and steel, each of these industry sectors has contributed to an impressive 11 percent increase over 2009. Not too shabby considering that even in a down economy, our 2009 shipments were still a seven percent improvement versus 2008. Tonnage at the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor rose 63 percent over 2009 figures. Coke shipments have increased significantly, thanks to increased market demand. Steel grew 73 percent over last year and, within that, scrap steel rebounded solidly. The activity on our waterfront really says it all. Barge traffic increased 13 percent; the number of ships calling on the port is up by 75 percent and the amount of cargo moved by those ships more than doubled. Although Burns Harbor has enjoyed the largest percentage increases thus far in 2010, it isn’t the only port that’s off to a great start midway through the year. Thirty-four percent more barges representing 32 percent more tonnage moved through the Port of IndianaJeffersonville and rail traffic grew by 57 percent. Thanks to marketing efforts by companies who use the port, fertilizer tonnages increased by 58 percent and worldwide demand for a bumper crop pushed grain numbers up 30 percent over last year. Base commodities, such as steel, road salt, asphalt, minerals, plastics and petroleum products, also grew steadily over the year. For the Port of Indiana-Mount Vernon, 2009 was an exceptional year: the highest tonnage since 1994 and the third highest in its history. If we can just repeat those results in 2010, we’ll know we had a good year. The port handled 2.23 million tons through the first six months of the year and, at this pace, can replicate the 2009 performance. Coal tonnage and number of barges through the port remained virtually even. Fertilizer increased 32 percent because last year’s spring planting season was extremely wet, while this spring was kinder to farmers. Limestone numbers grew considerably thanks to the need to restock inventory. Our goal at the Ports of Indiana is to create a business environment that offers our port companies and customers a sustainable competitive advantage. We understand what that advantage means for our customers in terms of increasing their business, which in turn has a direct impact on growing Indiana’s economy. While our six-month tonnage performance has been encouraging, we will not be satisfied until all of our port companies have rebounded to numbers seen before the economic downturn and can enjoy the growth and prosperity they’re working so hard to achieve.
NEWS & NOTES Expanded summit to feature U.S. logistics experts, unveil new directory Indiana Logistics Summit & Directory set for Oct. 26-27 at Historic Union Station INDIANAPOLIS – Top national experts in transportation, distribution and logistics will descend upon the Crossroads of America, Oct. 26-27, for the 2010 Indiana Logistics Summit, appropriately hosted at the first union station in the world. The eighth annual conference will be titled “Economic Recovery: Fact or Fiction? – What’s coming down the road, rail, river and runway?” Co-hosted by Purdue University and Ports of Indiana, the summit brings together representatives from transportation, government, economic development and academia to discuss issues affecting the industry and how to grow business through logistics. The event will also unveil the 2010-11 Indiana Logistics Directory – the premier listing of “who’s who” in logistics for this part of the country. A fitting showcase for Indiana’s rich transportation history, the Indianapolis Union Station opened Sept. 20, 1853. It was replaced by a bigger station in 1888 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. In 1900, the facility served as a major Midwest rail hub servicing more than 200 trains a day, which caused construction of an elevated platform so as not to interfere with regular street traffic. The 2010 Indiana Logistics Summit will take place in and around the Grand Hall of Union Station. Attendees can even register to stay in one of the hotel’s limited number of Indiana Secretary of Commerce Mitch Roob speaks at the 2009 Pullman train car suites. In a change from past Indiana Logistics Summit. The expanded 2010 Summit is titled years, the 2010 summit has “Economic Recovery: Fact or been expanded to two days to Fiction? What’s coming down the include additional speakers, road, rail, river and runway?”
new networking events, regionally focused roundtables and an evening reception in the Grand Hall of Union Station. Another addition to the 2010 summit will be “speed networking” sessions, where participants can sign up for one-on-one meetings with major U.S. companies to learn what it takes to earn their business. These popular sessions, which last approximately 10 minutes each, will be available for pre-registration closer to the event on a first-come, first-served basis. To close the 2010 summit, there will be a series of small roundtable sessions focusing on regional and industry-specific issues. Space is available for groups who would like to host a targeted logistics workgroup. Some of the topics that will be discussed during the 2010 summit include: Industry updates from road, rail, water and air experts; Status reports for major transportation projects around Indiana; Current event issues from around the U.S.; Indiana’s rankings in key logistics areas and more. The 2010 summit will have speaker presentations and special events taking place over two days, including the evening Grand Hall Reception on Oct. 26, a keynote luncheon, extensive booth displays and networking opportunities. Additional information about speakers and session topics will be announced soon. Summit registration is now open and includes the Grand Hall Reception, continental breakfast, keynote luncheon and parking for both days. Information is available online at www.indianalogistics.com regarding registration, sponsorships and exhibitor space.
Commission approves $887,000 for port infrastructure projects The Ports of Indiana Commission awarded $887,000 in contracts for port improvements during meetings in April and June. Rail Trak Construction Co., a division of Engineered Constructors Inc. of Hammond, Ind., was awarded $438,917 to rebuild roughly 1,100 feet of rail track at the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor.

Walsh & Kelly Inc., of Griffith, Ind., will recondition nearly 1,675 feet of rail track and add 600 feet of new track. Russell’s Excavating & Septic Tanks Inc., of Mount Vernon, Ind., was awarded a contract for $30,320 to shape 115 feet of eroded riverbank and install a two-foot thick layer of rock to prevent future
erosion at the Mount Vernon port. The commission approved a lease of five acres with the Metropolitan School District of Mount Vernon for the Future Farmers of America to use for educational purposes in growing crops at the port. In order to support the local school program, all rental frees were waived on this parcel. Other items approved at the April and June meetings included an easement for Vectren Energy of Indiana for a primary electric line at the Mount Vernon port, a right of first refusal for Steel Dynamics Inc. to lease land at the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville and the appointment of Ports of Indiana Controller Laurie Peckham to assistant secretary of the commission. www.portsofindiana.com · Summer 2010 5
Port commissioner’s book chronicles family history through mother’s life Maria Arredondo did not set out to blaze a trail or break barriers when she left Mexico in search of the American dream. She just wanted a better life for her children… all 10 of them. But the quiet strength of this modest woman helped her children shatter barriers and left an indelible imprint on this country’s history. Ports of Indiana Commissioner Ramón Arredondo and his wife, Trisha, have written a book titled “Maria’s Journey,” which chronicles a dramatic story of perseverance and love that laid the foundation for an amazing family. “My mother certainly never viewed herself as special, but she touched many lives, especially those of her children who went forward to contribute in various areas of public service,” said Ramón Arredondo. “Though a shy and modest person herself, it was through the lives she influenced that she served family, community, state and country.” The Arredondo children went on to break barriers: first Hispanic Chief of Police in Lake County, first Hispanic Indiana State Representative, first Hispanic graduate of the University of Central Florida’s masters’ of public policy program and longest-serving Hispanic state trial judge in the nation. Four of the siblings followed in their father’s footsteps working with the steel union. One daughter became the first Hispanic secretary to work at her district of United Steel Workers of America and a son was the first Hispanic president of the largest steelworkers’ chapter in the nation. But the story of the woman who raised these children is truly an incredible journey. Maria became a naturalized citizen in 1978 and was awarded Indiana’s highest honor, the Sagamore of the Wabash, from Gov. Evan Bayh in 1990. She passed away in 2004 at age 97. Published by the Indiana Historical Society Press, “Maria’s Journey” begins in the early 1900s when Maria was a child during the Mexican Revolution. At age four, her family was forced to hide for fear of being robbed, raped or murdered. Her father had left, leaving them vulnerable during this time of unrest. They were poor, relying on her mother’s job in the fields and odd jobs her eight-year old brother could find. Maria entered into an arranged marriage with Miguel Arredondo at age 14, which was common at that time. Miguel’s family had more money and social standing. They moved to Texas a short time later to work on the railroads and then on to East Chicago, Ind., where Miguel found work in a steel mill. Maria raised 10 children while Miguel worked in the mill, where he committed a great deal of effort toward improving the working conditions and founding the union there. “The Arredondo’s story, which spans three generations, gives insight into the lives of American immigrants in the 20th century,” said 6 · Summer 2010 PORTSIDE MAGAZINE
Teresa Baer, managing editor of family history publications with the Indiana Historical Society Press. “At the same time, it provides a window onto the everyday life of Americans during the era leading up to the stock market crash of 1929, through Prohibition and the Great Depression, into World War II and its aftermath – the domestic terror of McCarthyism and the Korean War, in which two Arredondo sons served.” A photo of Maria and her mother – taken on the day of her wedding to Miguel Arredondo – is featured on the cover of Ramón and Trisha Arredondo’s book, “Maria’s Journey.” Photos provided by the Indiana Historical Society Press, courtesy of the Arredondo family.
The book was born out of a 1970s community oral history project at Indiana University Northwest. History professor James Lane spent hours recording Maria as she talked of her life while Ramón, her second youngest, acted as interpreter. “Today we could get passed-down stories about people already gone,” Baer said. “In this case, we have a very detailed, first-hand account.” According to Baer, the historical society has been looking for ways to connect with the state’s Hispanic community, but this book extends far beyond that demographic. “‘Maria’s Journey’ ends up telling us not just a story familiar to every immigrant family,” Baer said. “It tells the story of Americans during a crushing, bruising, confusing time that was also full of hope and promise.” “Maria’s Journey” is available through the Indiana Historical Society History Market, as well as select booksellers. Ramón Arredondo was Visit http://shop. appointed to the Ports indianahistory.org to order of Indiana commission in 2006 by Gov. Mitch online. Daniels.

25 Years! PORT OF INDIANA-JEFFERSONVILLE CELEBRATES SILVER ANNIVERSARY
The Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville moved its first cargoes the summer of 1985.
KNOW? JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. – This summer marks 25 years since cargoes first crossed the docks at the state’s youngest public port, the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville. “The ports commission, city and state officials and the Jeffersonville community have our thanks for their vision in establishing this port,” said Ports of Indiana CEO Rich Cooper. “Their continued support has provided a dynamic maritime environment poised for more growth.” The process to get the port open was a long one – 14 years from the first studies to the first cargoes. The Indiana General Assembly funded a $50,000 feasibility study in 1971 for a third port, located on the Ohio River between Warrick County and Ohio.

Gray, professor emeritus of history at Indiana University and author of the book “Public Ports for Indiana.” “The opposition to the port centered in Kentucky, who claimed that environmental concerns motivated them, but most people believed it was their desire to help Louisville’s economy.” Kentucky took its case to federal court arguing that according to state boundary lines, the Ohio River belonged 1988: Gov.

MEMORIES “My first trip out to the port was in 1984. At that time, Loop Road was the only road that had any pavement on it, and it was far from complete. There were no tenants, although the contractor for Merchants Grain, now CGB, was beginning to do some preliminary soil testing. The port office was a small construction trailer, staffed with only an engineer and a secretary.”

to Kentucky. The court allowed Indiana to continue with the project because the low water point in 1792 – when Kentucky became a state – was several yards from the current shore. The commission broke ground in 1982, and the port handled its first shipment in the summer of 1985. The first cargoes were 100-ton automobile presses from West Germany. Despite not opening until mid-year, the port moved more than 210,000 tons that first season. Gov. Bob Orr officially dedicated the port in 1988. Guests were invited to sign their name to a historic proclamation, which was then sealed in a commemorative bottle. Mayor Dale Orem of Jeffersonville and Mayor Robert Real of New Albany, Ind., traveling together in Eagle Steel’s bridge crane over the Ohio River, provided a finale to the ceremony as they launched the bottle into the river. Jeffersonville’s port soon became one of the fastest growing on the inland rivers, adding more than 20 companies after 1993. It also gained the reputation of a steel campus with more than a dozen businesses offering complementary steel services. In 2008, the port’s name was changed to the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville from it’s original title, Clark Maritime Centre. “The name was changed to raise the profile of this facility and put Jeffersonville on the map as a major destination for maritime shipping,” said Cooper. “People need to know, number one, it is a port; number two, it is part of Indiana’s port system, and number three, it is in Jeffersonville.” Over the last 25 years, the port has moved more than 30 million tons of cargo and currently handles roughly 1.4 million tons each year. Now home to 27 companies, it has room to grow with 320 acres available for development.

“When I started working for the port in 1989, it was perhaps the most challenging and exciting time. Challenging, because there wouldn’t be direct interstate highway access until 1994 when the I-265 extension would be completed. This made it difficult to convince prospective companies to locate at the port. But it was exciting because we understood the potential the port had and what it would mean for the community and Indiana.”
Phil McCauley Ports of Indiana Commissioner
Brian Sieg Port of IndianaJeffersonville Operations Manager
“I was deputy mayor of Jeffersonville from 1996 to 2000. For this city, the late-1990s was a booming time. Port development seemed to jumpstart it. There were something like 2,500 brand new jobs and the average wage increased by approximately one-third. Much of this was attributed to new companies that came into the port. It was the most fun I’ve ever had at a job. The city of Jeffersonville, the port and One Southern Indiana were on a roll. The port was the engine that started development in Jeffersonville and pushed the city up a notch – higher paying jobs, which led to new home construction and generated growth. It led to overall improvements across the city.”
“This port is a great success story. In 25 years, we have seen this facility grow to be a thriving river port on one of the busiest waterways in the world. I don’t think the Indiana General Assembly could have ever imagined that their initial investment into this port would now be generating more than $1 billion in economic activity each year and 10,000 total jobs.” Steven Stemler State Representative and former Ports of Indiana Commissioner
Eagle Steel was the first steel tenant at the port. Today the port is known as a steel campus, with 13 companies offering complementary steel services.

Kinder Morgan recently hit a safety milestone – 5,000 days with no OSHA recordable incidents. The last recordable injury was in October of 1996.
PORT REPORT Matt Smolek Port Director
PORT OF INDIANA – JEFFERSONVILLE
Port companies celebrate safety records JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. – Two companies at the Port of IndianaJeffersonville recently hit milestones for safety. Kinder Morgan has gone 5,000 business days without a recordable injury – that’s 14 years if you’re counting. Chemtrusion and Mytex Polymers recently reached 1,000 days with no incidents. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), recordable injuries are ones that require medical treatment beyond basic first aid. Kinder Morgan hit the 5,000-day milestone on June 19 – which means the facility has not had a recordable or lost time accident since October of 1996. The company includes safety in its mission in order to protect its employees, the public and the environment and to avoid injuries and environmental emissions. Kinder Morgan handles steel coils, wire rod, pig iron, zinc and other products at the port via barges, trucks and railcars. Throughout North America, the company has roughly 37,000 miles of pipelines and 180 terminals, making it one of the continent’s largest pipeline transportation and energy storage companies. Chemtrusion and Mytex Polymers are “sister” companies that work together in the same facility. Chemtrusion manufactures plastic compounds and Mytex Polymers manages sales and marketing of the products. The plastic compounds are formulated to a customer’s specific requirements for use in the automotive industry. Chemtrusion and Mytex Polymers have a unique safety plan called “Pro-Active Safety.” Instead of measuring safety merely in number of accidents, the company counts safety-oriented tasks. These tasks can be anything from an inspection or training to employees stretching before work. Employees are asked to perform at least one proactive task per day. All 65 Chemtrusion and Mytex Polymers employees did 64,979 of those tasks in 2009 and the companies found that injuries – even first aid incidents – decreased significantly. The last OSHA recordable injury was in August of 2007. Waterborne shipping is the safest mode of transporting goods, and our goal is to maintain a world-class port system that provides 14 · Summer 2010 PORTSIDE MAGAZINE
a safe environment for companies to grow their business. We are proud that our port companies share this strong commitment to safety. We would like to give a special thanks to Kinder Morgan’s Terminal Manager Brad Seese and Supervisor/Safety Representative Sean Nally, as well as Chemtrusion’s Site Manager Denis Beckman and Administrative Manager Karen Roe for their roles in keeping the port a safe place to work. Glen Dorman, color tech, and Kim Meadors, analytical tech, check a product for contamination at Chemtrusion. The business, along with sister company Mytex Polymers, recently hit a safety milestone – 1,000 business days with no OSHA recordable injuries.
Port honors administrative assistants
On April 20, the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville celebrated Administrative Assistants’ Day by inviting the administrative assistants from all of our port companies for a luncheon. Developed and organized by our own phenomenal administrative assistant, Bonnie Underwood, the afternoon gave us an opportunity to show our appreciation to these pillars of our port companies for the widevariety of duties they fulfill that make each of their businesses run so smoothly. The day featured spa treatments and prize giveaways, all donated from local businesses. It was a wonderful opportunity to get all of our port companies together for some networking fun and relaxation. Contact Matt Smolek at (812) 283-9662; email@example.com
Workers install a conveyor belt at CGB’s bulk cargo transloading facility at the Port of Indiana-Mount Vernon.
PORT REPORT Phil Wilzbacher Port Director
PORT OF INDIANA – MOUNT VERNON
CGB expanding dock operations for liquid, bulk cargoes MOUNT VERNON, Ind. – Consolidated Grain and Barge Co. (CGB) is going back to the future, but not in the science fiction movie script way. Instead it’s dusting off an old idea in order to grow future business. In July, the grain stevedore and logistics provider completed construction of a bulk cargo transloading facility in the same area where they operated one from 1992 to 1997. According to Jason May, terminal manager of Consolidated Terminals and Logistics Co., a division of CGB, the new facility is bigger and better than the old one with an enlarged receiving pit between the port’s piers 2 and 3 and new conveying equipment. The facility will move cargoes from railcar to barge. Dried distillers grains will be the first commodity moved. The new facility also includes liquid barge loading equipment which will be used exclusively for ethanol.
Agrium names new terminal manager
Agrium U.S. Inc. promoted Jerrod Prather to the position of terminal manager in January. The facility receives fertilizer by barge and rail and ships it by truck to retail and wholesale dealers in southern Illinois, southern Indiana and western Kentucky. Prather started working at the facility in 1998, first as a scale operator and loader, Jerrod Prather and most recently assistant manager. He is also a member of Agrium’s Terminal Safety Council. A native of McLeansboro, Ill., he is a graduate of Southern Illinois University with a degree in business management. He and his wife Michelle have been married nine years and have two sons. Ports of Indiana congratulates Jerrod on his promotion and we look forward to working together growing the business.
Port launches steel yacht
Many an unusual cargoes have crossed the docks at the port through the years. In May, that list grew when the port placed the first yacht from a new Indiana boat The Passage, built by the Amazon Boat Co., was launched from the building company on the waters of port using heavy lift equipment. the Ohio River. Made of steel, the “Passage” is 50-feet long and weighs 25 tons. The boat took roughly two years to build and was designed by J.Z. Morris, who studied at the Westlawn School of Yacht Design, and Matthew Nix, who handled the steel fabrication. Nix’s family has been doing steel fabrication in Poseyville, Ind., for more than a hundred years. According to Morris, as they were building the yacht for his personal use, he and Nix decided to start a company that produces similar vessels: the Amazon Boat Co. Morris said steel makes a good boat-building material because it is strong and easily repaired. Due to the weight, it is typically reserved for larger boats. The metal does rust, so the crew at the boat company used epoxy to coat the steel and also used hightech corrosion protection and fireproof foam to fill cavities. Other features adding strength on the seas are reinforced windows and extra-large capacity bilge pumps. Morris plans for the Passage to spend the summer on Kentucky Lake and then down to Florida for the winter. For more information on the Amazon Boat Co., visit www.amazonboatcompany.com.

Workers unload steel slabs without a crane from the barge Niagara Spirit at the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor.
PORT REPORT Peter Laman Port Director
PORT OF INDIANA – BURNS HARBOR
No crane? No problem: Specialized barge saves time, money PORTAGE, Ind. – The Niagara Spirit can rise to any occasion … or at least any dock height. Armed with a unique ballast system and its own handy forklift, the barge can unload with no additional equipment. Port company NLMK Indiana, formerly Beta Steel, uses the vessel to move steel coils and slabs around the Great Lakes. Owned and operated by McKeil Marine of Hamilton, Ontario, the Niagara Spirit uses an automated ballast system to raise the barge so that it is the same height as the dock. Gord McNeil, director of business development with McKeil Marine, said the system also keeps the barge balanced when unloading cargo from one end. While the ballast system is fairly expensive, these barges load and unload faster than a traditional barge since no crane is needed. McNeil believes there are only six barges with this type of automated ballast system on the Great Lakes. McKeil Marine owns three in addition to the Niagara Spirit – the Lambert Spirit, Alouette Spirit and Sault au Cochon.
According to Adam Muñoz, division manager of logistics and material handling for NLMK Indiana, using the Niagara Spirit reduced the company’s unloading time by nearly half, down to an average of 12 to 14 hours per barge. This saves money for NLMK Indiana and means the company can use its own equipment instead of renting a crane. McNeil says the Niagara Spirit was designed with versatility in mind. With a deck that can bear roughly 1,700 pounds per square foot, it was made to carry heavy cargo – including the heaviest steel coils and slabs. A 65-ton forklift stays onboard for loading and unloading. The barge can also carry loose commodities, such as coal and salt, and it has tanks to carry liquids like calcium chloride. For more information on the Niagara Spirit and the rest of McKeil Marine’s fleet, visit www.mckeil.com.
Olson heads up Cargill facility at port
I would like to introduce Dave Olson, facility manager for the Cargill grain terminal at the port. Olson transferred here in 2009 from a position in Dubuque, Iowa, where he not only managed the grain and fertilizer terminal in Iowa, but also a warehouse in Wisconsin. Olson, a native of upper Michigan, started his career in the logging industry. He soon joined Dave Olson the Cargill family and held positions at the Fulton, Ill., and Buffalo, Iowa, facilities. In his current role, Olson is responsible for the safe and efficient operations and day-to-day leadership of the facility. The Cargill Burns Harbor terminal has one of the fastest truck unloading capabilities in the area and can also handle grain by rail, barge or ship. Because of an automated ballast system, the Niagara Spirit can match the height of a dock. Photo provided by McKeil Marine.

Ports of Indiana expands FTZ reach to 21 counties A new national Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) program is opening doors for counties around Indiana’s ports. With recent applications to the U.S. ForeignTrade Zones Board, the Ports of Indiana David Haniford General Counsel can now provide a streamlined activation process for companies seeking FTZs in 21 counties surrounding the ports. The following counties are now eligible for a speedy activation process under the new Alternative Site Framework (ASF) program:
Foreign-trade zones, also known as FTZs, are restricted-access areas considered outside of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol territory which allows reduced or delayed payment of customs duties on foreign products brought into the zone.
FTZ Board announces new manufacturing initiatives
The FTZ Board recently announced some new programs in the works to benefit manufacturers. Previously, a company had to have FTZ manufacturing authority in place to defer paying Customs duties on equipment before it was up and running. Under the new policy, Customs duties on production equipment and parts can be delayed until the equipment is in use for companies in an active FTZ, but the company also will not need to have its FTZ manufacturing authority finalized to take advantage of the deferred duties so long as they have activated zone status. Under the streamlined ASF option offered by the Ports of Indiana, a company can now secure zone designation in 30 days. The FTZ Board is considering another concept as part of President Obama’s National Export Initiative to double exports over the next five years. The Board is considering that companies manufacturing products for export in an existing zone site could take advantage of the FTZ benefits without first filing a formal manufacturing application. This could save companies time and money in the application process. Both of these initiatives could provide significant benefits for manufacturers.
• Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Jackson, Scott and Washington near the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville (FTZ #170) • Jasper, LaPorte, Lake, Newton, Porter and Starke near the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor (FTZ #152) • Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Knox, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh and Warrick near the Port of Indiana-Mount Vernon (FTZ #177) Because the service areas are essentially “pre-approved” in an ASF, companies in these counties can join an FTZ in as little as 30 days. Previously, an application for a new FTZ site took about a year from start to finish. This does not mean businesses currently located in other Indiana counties are out of luck. Subzones are available to companies anywhere in the state and additional counties may be added to the ASF designation in the future. We expect our ASF designation to be finalized later this year, but interested companies can start the process now and even get preliminary FTZ activation.
