As stated in the original post, the following link will track the shipping of your car (Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics)...

http://schedule.2wglobal.com/AppTracking/

For those who have their VIN, enter it in the Cargo ID field, then press <Track>. This seems to work for sedans (built in South Africa and shipped from Durban or Maputo) and convertibles (/coupes?) (built in Germany and shipped from Zeebrugge).

Anyway, after a bit of detective work (went to carsales.com.au, searched for a similar model Demo from a dealer in your state, used the VIN and entered it into the tracking website above to find the Vessel Name). I managed to identify a few vessels, MORNING CELLO, TIRRANNA, TOBA, TOSCANA and OTELLO (this is the same vessel that shipped my car a year ago).

You can also do a vessel search using the link below...

It looks like your car is on OTELLO (Voyage: CO026-OTL) due in MELBOURNE on 30/10/2010 (refer to the attached screen shot). Does that look right?
