The BMW autos are not kept on the pier after offloading like Toyota and all the rest of them.

So those cars are kept above sea level. The tide that night rose 15' above normal.
The bikes however come in differently. In containers on a container ship, at a different terminal in Newark. And those are kept on the ground awaiting truck/rail pickup.
