Where do ED cars get on the boat?

I thought it was Bremerhaven.

If so, how does the car get from the drop off location to the port of departure?

BMW uses a shipping company to transport the cars to Bremerhaven.

5. Come Home
Meet your BMW in your driveway.
It couldn't be easier to ship your new BMW home at the conclusion of your trip. There are 11 convenient drop-off locations throughout Europe. Simply drive your car to the location of your choice.

E.H. Harms is the designated shipping company. The cost of transportation, customs clearance and duty, and marine insurance is included in the purchase price of all BMWs sold under the European Delivery Program.

All cars depart from Bremerhaven, Germany. It will take approximately 6-8 weeks to the East coast and 8-10 weeks to the West Coast from drop off date for a car to arrive at your BMW center for final delivery. Be advised that if you drop off your car at any other location than Germany that arrival time will be longer.

The contract I got when I dropped-off my car after ED says transporter as BLG logistics. Maybe there is a relation between BLG and E.H. Harms. BLG has their hub in Bremerhaven too.
