1/22/09); 75 FR 71069-71070, 11/22/10). The ASF is an option for 
grantees for the establishment or reorganization of general-purpose 
zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the 
designation of new ``usage-driven'' FTZ sites for operators/users 
located within a grantee's ``service area'' in the context of the 
Board's standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a general-purpose zone 
project. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the 
Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on August 3, 2011.
    FTZ 77 was approved by the Board on April 2, 1982 (Board Order 189, 
47 FR 16191, 04/15/82), expanded on June 17, 1992 (Board Order 582, 57 
FR 28483, 06/25/92) and expanded and reorganized on September 27, 2001 
(Board Order 1193, 66 FR 52741, 10/17/01).
    The current zone project includes the following sites: Site 1 (22 
acres)--Port of Memphis at President's Island Industrial Park, 
intersection of Port Street and Channel Avenue, Memphis; Site 2 (7 
acres)--Spinnaker Inc., 5000 East Raines Road, Memphis; Site 3 (109

Construction (Parcel 3, 3 acres), 227 Highway 45 West, Humboldt; Site 4 
(419 acres total)--at Memphis Depot Business Park (Parcel 1, 391 acres) 
at 2163 Airways Blvd., Memphis; Flextronics Inc. (Parcel 2, 24 acres) 
at 5200 Tradeport Street, 6100 Holmes St, and 6380 Holmes Street, 
Memphis; and, Ozburn Hessey Logistics (Parcel 3, 4 acres) at 5265 
Hickory Hill Road, Memphis; Site 5 (5 acres)--Quality Packaging 
Services International, 3755 Knight Arnold Road, Memphis; Site 6 (0.5 
acres)--FedEx Supply Chain Services, Inc., 5025 Tuggle Road, Memphis; 
Site 7 (30 acres)--Del-Nat Tire Corporation, 2365 Texas Drive, Memphis; 
Site 8 (79 acres)--Patterson Warehouses, Inc., 5388 Airways Blvd., 
Memphis; and, Site 9 (50 acres)--Baxter Healthcare Corporation, 4835 S. 
Mendenhall Road, Memphis.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be Shelby 
County, Tennessee, as described in the application. If approved, the 
grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based 
on companies' needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is 
within the Memphis Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize and expand its 
existing zone project under the ASF as follows: to remove parcel 3 of 
Site 3; to clarify the boundaries of parcel 1 of the 391-acre Memphis 
Depot Business Park within Site 4; to renumber parcel 2 of Site 4 as 
Site 11; to renumber parcel 3 of Site 4 as Site 12; and, to include an 
additional 16 acres at Site 6 (new total--16.5 acres). Site 4 would 
become a magnet site and Sites 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12 would 
become ``usage-driven'' sites. The applicant is also requesting 
approval of the following ``magnet'' site: Proposed Site 10 (2, 000 
acres)--Frank C. Pidgeon Industrial Park, Paul Lowery Road in the 
southwest corner of the Memphis city limits. The ASF allows for the 
possible exemption of one magnet site from the ``sunset'' time limits 
that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes 
that proposed magnet Site 10 be so exempted. Because the ASF only 
pertains to establishing or reorganizing a general-purpose zone, the 
application would have no impact on FTZ 77's authorized subzones.
    In accordance with the Board's regulations, Kathleen Boyce of the 
FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and 
information presented in the application and case record and to report 
findings and recommendations to the Board.
    Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions 
(original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is

during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-
day period to October 24, 2011.
    A copy of the application will be available for public inspection 
at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, 
Room 2111, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue, NW.,
