Mine completed production December 22 and is "in transit" but isn't yet listed by WW on their quick search (translated: waiting to board a ship of theirs). It appears other cars are being loaded this week (did a "fuzzy search" on VINs).

Thanks red998 -- will do! Your dealer can provide you your car's VIN and which shipping company is transporting it. I assumed it was one shipper, never saw it on their tracking website, and later learned it was on another company's vessel. Turns out my car finished assembly on December 22 and was on a ship leaving Bremenhaven on December 27 (what holiday slowdown?!). Making arrangements to move up my PCD delivery date, given the ship (Aegean Highway) arrives Charleston this Friday.

Now that I know which vessel my car's on, and from which port it'll be unloaded, I just monitor the port's website (Charleston in my case). Once it docks, the port shows when it actually arrived and began unloading.

My ship docked in Charleston midday yesterday and was unloaded and gone by this morning. The '800' number still lists my car as 'in transit' even though it's probably at the VDC by now.

You're lucky, it says your car is in transit. When my car was at the port, the 800 number still said the car was waiting for transport. Meanwhile the ship unloaded and left the port. When the 800 number said it was at the VDC, the car was on a truck to the dealer.

So the 800 number info is behind in updates. Your dealer gets daily updates once the car is unloaded at the port.
