The notion of free zone, appears frequently in commercial discussions, as being the place
where you can develop a business, due to several facilities offered to both importers and exporters -
facilities of a customs, fiscal and commercial nature. Many companies use the advantages of the free
zone regime, as a good tool for fiscal optimization of costs. Under the conditions of globalization, it is
becoming increasingly important to use tools that optimize the flow of goods. In this sense, free zones
are the most suitable tools for optimizing both the flows of goods and the financial ones of companies.
With so many advantages it presents a free area related to a waterway, such as the Danube River. Our
