Background:  The BMW VDC is the point of entry for BMW, MINI, and Rolls Royce vehicles into the United States.  BMW currently has five VDC’s in the United States.  The New Jersey VDC processes approximately 60,000 cars per year and supports 8 states.  The West Coast VDC in Port Hueneme, California receives cars for the West Coast,  Baltimore VDC receives cars destined to the Midwest and the Virginia, Maryland dealers, and Brunswick, Georgia VDC receives cars destined for the southern United States.  BMW recently expanded its vehicle distribution network to southeastern Texas to better serve the 45 BMW and MINI dealers within four states (Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas) that make up a part of the Southern Region.  The New Jersey VDC processes an average of 300 cars per day including new BMWs, Minis, and Rolls-Royces, which arrive from Austria, Germany, Mexico, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.
