Zone

1. See: Free trade zone.

2. In marketing, an area that a single sales representative or team of sales representatives are assigned to cover. A sales representative whose zone is, for example, Oklahoma, is not allowed to try to sell products in Texas and vice versa. This helps prevents sales reps from competing with each other for commissions.
