How many East Coast VPSs are there?

So my car is sitting in Bremerhafen waiting for a ship.
I am a bit confused about East Coast VPCs. I know the one on NJ, my last 3 cars went there. But now there is supposedly also Baltimore and Charleston.
Can someone shed some light on this?

BMW has outsourced the VPC process to other parties. My car arrived at Brunswick, GA...

I should say some of the VPC process. BMW still uses the two original VPC's, NJ and Charleston.

I think Brunswick, GA is for inbound East coast delivery, NJ is for cars heading to Canada, and Charleston is for the X3 and X5 leaving from the plant in Spartanburg, SC.

The NJ VPC handles all cars for the northeast though some go through Baltimore as well. My last 550 came in through Charleston so they used to import through there at one time. Not sure now. Three years ago all east coast BMW imports went through NJ or Charleston, now they are using a number of other ports as well....

I bought mine here in Charleston at the only BMW dealership and it is arriving at the GA VDC according to the dealership. So Charleston port is only for exporting the suv's.
