Question Who's on Topeka? Sailing from Bremerhaven on 10/21

Shipping Line WWL
Voyage ID CD242
Vessel TOPEKA
Port Of Loading BREMERHAVEN Departure Date (dd/mm/yyyy) 21/10/2012
Bill Of Lading DE1268600 Destination Date (dd/mm/yyyy) 14/11/2012

Scheduled to leave Bremerhaven on October 21 and arrive in Hueneme (CA) on November 14. Finger's crossed for calm waters and honest deck-hands.

Exactly 3 weeks my car sat at the port.... Sigh.

Any other West Coast'rs on the boat?

I dropped my new coupe off in Frankfurt on October 16th, ...as much as I would like to dream that its on the Topeka which sailed on the 21st from Bremerhaven, its probably going to be sitting in port for the next 5+ weeks waiting on the Elektra or Asian King...doubt I'll see my new M before deep december

3 weeks! Damn. I was bummed mine waited 13 days

Dropped off at LOGINOUT on 10/4.

Left on board the Turandot out of Bremerhaven on the 17th.

Of course, the Turandot promptly sailed east for 2 days around Denmark to Goteborg, Sweden. Then, 2 days back around Denmark to Zeebrugge, Belgium. Now she's on her way to Southhmpton, UK...

At least she's headed West now.

Stalking these ships is not for the faint of heart.

That seems to be the standard route. Topeka made the same route last month. Guessing it picked up some Mini's in UK, and maybe Volvo's on the 1st stop.

The queue is long now, both at the German port, US port and VPC.

Hang in there, and try not to think about it.

Yes, as Topeka is a WW ship you can track your car using the VIN

Here's an image of the vessel at Bremerhaven right after they raised the ramp and prepare to set sail!

another way to track a specific ship is to use the free smartphone app or download "Marine Traffic" and punch in the ship's name.

Looks like it's taking a different route due to the hurricane. ETA at Port Hueneme is now 11/15.

Was to be expected I guess... That's just one day behind though, correct? If so, that should ease some of the congestion at the VPC and allow the cars to move through more quickly. Maybe wishful thinking.
