Who is awaiting transport?

I would guess that I am not alone in waiting for my car to be loaded onto the boat...

I've been in Bremerhaven for about 11 days now and it's killing me. My poor car is just sitting there in the freezing cold. And to think, if i was there and I had the keys I would just take off in it.

Scratch me off that list, I trusted the BMW hotline and that was a mistake. I entered my VIN on that cargo tracking site and it says it's on a boat.

Long boat wait times are not uncommon. My e46 sat in a lot for 4 weeks before it was loaded on a boat. I hope my e92 luck is better than my e46.

The hotline still says I'm awaiting transport and the ship got loaded 3 days ago.

Sorry for the broken link. Yes, the Vin # you can track either by Auto or RoRo. Just plug in your VIN and if you get some data then you are in luck.

Hhhmmm...try it again. First it didn't work for me, then after a second try it seemed to recognize the address.

Wow, you're right. Needs a refresh.

Damn, I need a VIN already.

Is that for any vessel it is on?

My status has just changed from production to awaiting transport. However through the hotline my car was finished production on the 19th.

It's for any Wallenius Wilhelmsen ship. They service the East Coast.

You called the hotline today?
I tried today and it just kicked me to an associate, who wasn't in since they are closed.

I don't think it gets updated over the weekend. I'll call on Monday to see if it is going 150 this week. I guess you will find out more about your production week. Could be earlier than you think if you are already 112. I don't think cars remain 112 for more than 2 weeks usually.

3 weeks for me. But as production ramps up, it may shorten.

Here's hoping!

As long as they have a set of 19's sitting around for me.
