BMW Opens New Texas Distribution Center

Yesterday, BMW Group celebrated the official opening of a new Vehicle Distribution Center at the Port of Galveston, Texas. The location was chosen for its ideal proximity to the rapidly growing Southern Region which includes 45 BMW and Mini dealers in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas.

“For us at BMW, there is nothing more important than the satisfaction and delight of our customers, and this Vehicle Distribution Center will play a critical role in keeping our customers happy,” said Craig Westbrook, Vice President, Customer Experience, BMW of North America. “We are very excited to be here, and be a part of Galveston’s economic vitality.”

In an associated press release, BMW announced that the new facility will import and process more than 32,000 vehicles every year. A workforce of nearly 40 BMW Group and Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) employees have already started receiving shipments of cars for processing this year.

“The Port of Galveston is pleased to welcome BMW Group and its partner Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics VSA for the opening of this state of the industry Vehicle Processing Center (VPC),” said Michael Mierzwa, Port of Galveston Port Director. “This VPC will have a substantial economic impact on the region and is in keeping with the Port’s strategic vision to attract new business that will promote jobs and economic prosperity for the community.”
