International Auto Processing at the Port of Brunswick, Georgia, handled it's five millionth vehicle, Georgia Ports Authority announced yesterday.

The five millionth vehicle was a silver Hyundai Genesis that arrived on the Wallenius Wilhelmsen vessel Isolde.

"In 2014, we handled more than 450,000 vehicles," said Robert Miller, president and CEO of International Auto Processing. "Most of the import vehicles handled by IAP are delivered to the six-state Southeast area, although some customers serve dealerships as far west as Texas and as far north as the mid-Atlantic states."

Imports arrive from Europe, Asia and Mexico. Exports account for about a third of IAP's volume. The port now ranks as the busiest in the nation for the import of new vehicles and the No. 2 U.S. port in total import-export trade. By the end of 2014, GPA terminals in Brunswick and Savannah surpassed 7 million vehicles moved since 1986.

International Auto Processing began its Colonel's Island operation in 1986, with its first shipment of 567 Yugos (all in red).
