Tracking the Delivery of your baby

If your car has to cross an ocean to get to you, I believe this is a way to track delivery (taken from the pieces I could put together). It should work for US and Canada. Not sure what the Australian lines are.

Once your spec is firm, your dealer should give you a car build schedule. Find the date of the German exit from their port, probably Emden. You probably want to get an updated schedule as the date gets closer. Schedules can change and what you have in January could be different in a couple of months.

Go here. On the right side select your trade route (e.g., USA).

For USA and, I think, Canada, select VW Logistics

A PDF schedule will come up. Ask your dealer for the boat name. Look at the schedule column for the date that boat leaves the dock. For example, today it looks like the Gracious Ace leaves Emden 1/30 and docks in Halifax Canada and then RI. US west coast cars might go to Houston.

Go here. While the ship is near land, you can track it. Not sure how to track it in the open ocean because it uses a different system. There are also apps for smart phones that can track it.

Once the ship is back near land, you can track it until it docks.

Once PDI is done, you can start looking at all the car haulers on the road near you and hope you car is on one of them :)

I hope this helps somebody interested in tracking delivery of their car (which is different from tracking their car ;).

You can also just google this and find lots of entries where people tracked their delivery.

edit: 21 Nov 2022. my.porsche.com might be able to allow some form of tracking

For anyone that went straight from Emden to Halifax..... Can you let me know if your boat took the same route that mine (Violet Ace) is taking? Hes going south of the Azores (Red line) when I would figure he would take the more direct (orange line). Then again, im prbobably not taking into accout for the curvature of the earth :). Any help is appreciated. At this rate, hes going to be 1-2 days late to Halifax! He was supposed to arrive on the 18th, but it looks like a strange route for some reason.... Any thoughts/help/past experience is appreciated.
Yes same thing with sunshine ace

Do you know how long it took to get from Halifax to your dealer? Which day did your ship dock in Halifax?
Seems to me, it takes about 10-12 days to get from Halifax to Toronto by the looks of some other ppl, however this was Q2/Q3 last year, so maybe things are quicker now as C19/supply chain issues have cleared up for the mostpart... I think.
Vessel arrived on 24 of february, Macan arrived in Laval on march 17. I Found on CN website that IT take 6 Days from Halifax to Montreal.
