In a bid to serve the needs of 45 BMW and Mini dealers in the southern region of Texas in the US, BMW is to expand its vehicle distribution network by opening up a distribution centre at the Port of Galveston, Texas.
The facility is expected to be fully-operational by 2016.
In a recent article published by PTI, Peel Ports had announced plans to open up an import centre, to be developed at the Port Salford site – the first tri-modal logistics project of its kind in the UK.
As reported by Chron, Craig Westbrook, Aftersales Vice President of BMW North America, said: “Rapid delivery to our customers and dealers is a key element to exceptional customer service. Once fully operational, the new Port of Galveston Vehicle Distribution Center will enable us to receive, prepare and deliver vehicles to the Southern Region even more quickly than before.”
Car manufacturer Rolls Royce has released a video recently showing its new ‘Oxbridge’ concept, which aims to increase the safety and navigation of seafarers aboard cargo ships.
The car giant is also involved with rail transportation as part of its plan with China to boost Africa’s rail-freight network.
