Mercedes to Export from Brunswick, Georgia


Lloyd's List reports that Mercedes-Benz will send its M-class vehicles to Europe through Brunswick, Georgia starting early in 1998. The company makes the cars at its plant in Tuscaloosa and will transport them to the Brunswick port via the Norfolk Southern line to the Colonel's Island Terminal.

Referring to the decision, Mercedes-Benz vice-president of purchasing and logistics Robert Birch said, "we analyzed such criteria as environmental conditions, vehicle processor/broker capabilities, and volume and frequency of steamship carriers serving the port."

The Brunswick port falls under the jurisdiction of the Georgia Ports Authority.
