The Toyota Venza, built in Georgetown, Ky., will be exported to Russia and Ukraine via the Port of Brunswick, Ga. The Georgia Ports Authority will move approximately 5,000 vehicles for Toyota per year.

Toyota announced it will begin exporting U.S.-assembled Venza crossover vehicles to Russia and Ukraine via the Port of Brunswick, Ga.

Colonel’s Island Terminal at the Port of Brunswick handled a record 612,489 auto and machinery units in CY2012, up from 497,404 in the previous year. Toyota is a new client for the GPA.

The Port of Brunswick handles approximately 10% of all U.S. roll-on/roll-off trade, and 12% of U.S. Ro/Ro imports. The port ranks third in the nation for auto and machinery trade, serving nearly two dozen domestic and foreign carmakers, as well as heavy equipment producers.

The Venza shipments, beginning this year, are expected to build upon Toyota’s all-time record export of more than 124,000 U.S.-assembled vehicles to 21 global markets in 2012, an increase of 45% over the prior year.

Once production begins in April 2013, Toyota expects to export approximately 5,000 Venza vehicles per year to Russia and Ukraine. These vehicles will be built at the company’s Georgetown, Ky., plant, which employs about 6,600 team members and represents a $6 billion investment.  The Georgetown plant is the company’s largest manufacturing facility outside of Japan.
