How many Defenders imported per month ?

Was in Baltimore yesterday picking up a 110 and saw around ten Defenders in various locations.
Out of curiosity does anyone have any idea of how many are coming in on a monthly / yearly basis.

I have no idea. What I do know though is that 95% (and maybe even more) of the 110's for sale in Europe and meeting the US import criteria, are finally being sold to the US.

No clue how many are entering annually.

I have 2-3 @ Baltimore right now depending on if one was picked up. 2 @ Newark, 1 @ Brunswick, 1 just picked up @ Galveston, and 1 from Bremerhaven arriving @ Tacoma. Just handled a container of parts from Netherlands through @ Long Beach for a forum member this week as well (Customs did an intensive exam)

Inbound there's a 110 from Ireland, a Minerva from Uk, a 110 from Italy, and a Perentie 5 door from Melbourne.

Ken were you @ Dundalk marine terminal on North side of harbor or Childs St on South side ?

12-17 on average per RORO into port of Tacoma (this accounts for half the west coast RORO and all of the western Canada RORO)

I'll ask. I typically don't get to personally see the majority of the trucks I handle given the geography involved. This Minerva is going to a mountain cabin in Reading, Vt. so hopefully the owner will get it to a few events.

Land Rovers crack down on imports.....cough Homeland Security crack down on imports may have been the best advertisement for the brand you could possibly have.
