The Port of Brunswick’s newest vehicle processing center for Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) opened its doors today with the arrival of more than 1,600 Mercedes-Benz autos. This shipment marks the first delivery of import Mercedes-Benz autos to Brunswick’s Colonel’s Island Terminal.

“The opening of our new Vehicle Processing Center in Brunswick, Georgia is a milestone for our company that aims to increase efficiencies in our distribution process which will ultimately benefit our customers and dealers,” said Mercedes-Benz USA’s Vice President, Sales Operations Michael Slagter. “Bringing imports into Brunswick is a great match for our exports from our manufacturing center in Tuscaloosa, Alabama that have been shipping from the Port since 1997. We look forward to strengthening our work with the Georgia Ports Authority.”
