My 330 Sport is sitting at a port in Germany

Earlier this week I spoke with my dealer who confirmed that my 330i has been built (black, terra, alum, SP,PP,CP). He said it should make it on a boat on 12/1. I called the 800 number this morning which stated that my ride is sitting at the port in Germany waiting for it's ship to come in. Question...

To track my car on http://www.2wglobal.com/www/customerCentre/index.jsp I enter the VIN# in the AUTO CARGO area of the tracking page?

Thanks!

Rich

Next ship departs 12/06 for Charleston. I assume that is which port your car will be going to.

is that the Freedom ship? when i track mine it says it's been loaded on the vessel on 11/28. does that still mean it won't be leaving the port until the 6th?

how do you know the departure times?

Not NYC?

In Nathans Ultimate Guide posting he mentions New York as the destination port for arriving ships. Is it actually Charleston?

Rich,

I'm in the exact same situation as you. I ordered the car on the same day as you and it's currently sitting at port awaiting a ship. Chances are we'll be on the same ship. I'm dying to get it before christmas...i guess that's wishful thinking.

My car just got loaded onto Freedom and is sailing as we speak. But I know your pain. It took about 19 days between completion of car and loading on the ship. Boy, did that suck!

It depends on what region you reside in. The NY port handles the Northeast region and probably part of the upper Midwest. Charleston handles Southeast and part of the lower Midwest.

Can someone give me the 800 number? Never knew it existed... I thought Owner's Circle is the only place to pull up your delivery status.

Slider, if SCA is correct our cars will be on a NYC bound ship. One leaves tomorrow and arrives in the states on 12-11. Lets keep our fingers crossed tomorrow!

I think that might be wishful thinking, although that would be amazing if it got on that ship. I'll probably call my dealer either tomorrow or friday and see if he's got some more accurate info for me. I'll keep you posted.

BTW, nice color combo Moondog. I really thought about that one but I went with the beige interior and poplar wood.

I just ordered my 330i on November 18, and it was completed on November 29. It is now waiting for dispatch to port. Can I track my vehicle the way you are? I live in Southern California, so I'm not sure if it uses the same shipping lines.

Check out "the Ultimte Order Guide" by Nathan at the top of this forum page. He wrote the following about west coast deliveries...

For west coast deliveries, the shipping company's website (NYK Lines) is http://www2.nykline.com/home/index.html. You can also use http://www.dbh.de/index.php?id=151&L=0
to track the departure of your ship from Bremerhaven to Port Hueneme. Apparently NYK Line doesn't make it easy to find your ship. After that, if you want to know when your ship is planning to dock in San Diego, San Diego Marine Information Systems will give you the arrival schedule for Port Hueneme (west coast delivery) at
http://www.sdmis.org/schedule/.
