would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on 
companies' needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is 
within and adjacent to the Greenville/Spartanburg Customs and Border 
Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize and expand its 
existing zone project to include existing Sites 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 10, and

possible exemption of one magnet site from the ``sunset'' time limits 
that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes 
that Site 2 be so exempted. The applicant is also requesting approval 
of the following ``magnet'' site:
    Proposed Site 13 (318 acres)--VMI Logistics Park, Victor Hill Rd., 
Greer. Because the ASF only pertains to establishing or reorganizing a

authorized subzones.

FTZ staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and 
information presented in the application and case record and to report
