BWA expanded its operations to Nicaragua in 2017 to take advantage of the duty-free opportunities presented by DR-CAFTA. Any woven or knit fabric that is produced either in the United States or a DR-CAFTA country can be used to make apparel for duty-free import into the U.S. BWA also leverages the extensive array of fabrics on the DR-CAFTA Short Supply list for duty-free import into the U.S. To date, BWA has successfully petitioned over 25 of the 100+ woven fabrics classified as Short Supply, and the vast majority of BWA’s exports from Nicaragua enter the United States duty free. Garments are shipped Free on Board (FOB) from Nicaragua or Landed-Duty Price (LDP) from our public warehouse in Miami, Fl. With only four days transit time for BWA’s finished goods to reach Miami by boat, BWA’s lead time represents one of the quickest and most flexible in the apparel industry today.
