Waiting Vessel - West Coast

Are there any west coast people waiting for a ship to bring them their knew baby? Looks like NYK has three ships lined up to deliver to the Port Hueneme. Anyone betting they'll get on the Hual Tokyo?

Any idea when the next ship leaves for the West coast from Bremerhaven? I have been waiting at the dock since 12/29 and I have been having trouble finding the right information on the shipping websites

Thanks : red 3251xt loaded

The tracking to the West Coast is pretty bad. I'd venture to guess that you're probably on a boat already.

Did you go to the Port of Bramerhaven site and put in Port Hueneme?

I emailed Harms, the shipping company. I did Euro Delivery, so I'm a bit different...I dropped it off on the 19th of Dec.

My car didn't finish in time to get on the Bellona. It sucks because the next ship to depart is the Hual Tokyo, and that is 15 days later. And, if you don't make it onto the Hual Tokyo, you've gotta wait until Jan 24th or 25th for the Jupiter Diamond or Hudson Leader.

I'm sort of in the same predicament. My car finished production Jan 3. I'm assuming that I'll be on the Hual Tokyo. This wait is killing me!

Looks like it might set sail this weekend. I'm praying that it does.

This is the link I'm using, which is from the first page of this thread:

http://www.dbh.de/index.php?id=151&L=0

I think the ship you mentioned, the WWL ships, are for East Coast deliveries. All the NYK ships are West Coast, and that makes the Hual Tokyo the next ship in line. sigh....

Funny.....from what I have found I thought it was going to be on the Madame Butterfly too. And it will set sail the 15th. I am heading on vaction around the middle of Febuary.. so it is looking like when I get back there should be a car waiting for me....?

Aphall - Do you find the ship Madame Butterfly in your search? I still for the life of me get that German website to find the right info for me! Thanks -- It looks like alot of us are hoping our cars are on the next boat. Let's work together and post anything we hear or find here!

Subsribe. Ours has been waiting shipment for over a week. Hopefully we'll be on the madame butterfly (what a crappy name for a ship...didn't madame butterfly commit suicide).

Well, looks like this is the latest off the German website:

I figure I'll give BMW NA one more day to update their 800 number system before I talk to customer relations and have them look up the ship information for me. I'll post what they tell me after I talk to them. If anyone gets on a ship headed for the West, pleast let us know!

Well, talked to BMWNA, and they can't tell me anymore than the automated system. They recommend I speak to my SA at my local dealer. So, I've got an email to her to see what ship my car is on.
