Who's on the Integrity?
 
2 Attachment(s)
My car is on the Integrity and since it's like watching paint dry tracking the ship, I thought I'd see who else might be on the ship so that we can commiserate together. Looks like she is in the North Atlantic on schedule for Brunswick, GA on 9/15/12.

We dropped off our car at CDG on 8/21. How do I find out which ship ours is on?

jeffnin 09-03-2012 12:02 PM

Go to the following website, http://www.2wglobal.com/www/wep//

Under the Track and Trace section, click on All Users. When the screen appears, type in your VIN number in the Cargo ID field. It sometimes takes several days for the car to appear, so you may have to keep checking every day or so until it shows up. Once it does, it will display the ship name and ports arrival/departure dates.

Is your car appearing on the WW site yet? Just curious because I dropped off at CDG too on 8/17 (even though it is an MB, shipping tracking should be the same). Mine doesn't appear yet :(

neve1064 09-04-2012 09:24 AM

Mine isn't showing up either. I'm resigned to the idea that my redelivery will take what the BMW website said. Ten weeks after August 21 is around October 30.

jeffnin 09-04-2012 09:36 AM

You have to give it time. I dropped mine off on 8/14 and it didn't show up on the website until 8/27 (one day before ship departed Bremerhaven). Just keep checking every day or so, and it will be there.

Ouch - I hope this is not the case. Up to now, previous EDs, it has taken an average of 6 weeks for me to get the car back but I have always been dropping off in Munich - first time Paris. The woman there though told me that the car won't stay at the lot for more than 7 days.

Strange that it showed up a day before! From what I had seen it the past they were showing up 24-48 hours after departure. If this is the case and our cars are not showing up then we missed TOMBARRA that is departing tomorrow and now the next chance is on the 13th (TORONTO). :eek:

My car is also on the Integrity, I dropped off at LOGINOUT in Munich with an after hours appointment on the 20th; I was pleasantly surprised on Friday to find out that it already left Bremerhaven on the 28th. Now I can't stop checking for tracking updates on the ship...in the middle of the ocean...the wait is excruciating.

This is really great timing! Did your car appear on the website the 31st even though the ship left on the 28th or was the 31st the first time you checked. Just curious if there was a 3 day delay.

I didn't track my car on the WWL website, I just emailed LOGINOUT on the 31st (the 3rd party who accepts the ED cars in Munich) and they responded with the ship, departure and arrival dates. Unfortunately, I didn't try to track the VIN on the WWL website until Sept 1, so I can't help determine the delay to track on WWL, sorry.

Thank you! At least you received responses back. I have emailed TT at CDG a couple of time too but so far no response. It seems drop off points in Germany are way more efficient.

Excellent, I knew I'd find someone else on the boat. :thumbup: The wait is painful, but at least we have confirmation that we're on a ship. My wait will probably be longer than yours, since I'm doing PCD in South Carolina, but it should be worth it. FYI, love the color combo on your 335; had a 335i Coupe in same color, and loved the Coral Red!

They probably don't track Mercedes as well as BMW's (couldn't resist) :rofl:

Thanks, I love the AW/CR combo! I was also planning to do PCD, but I haven't discussed it with my CA since I placed my order back in June; as I understand, you can't schedule a slot at the PCD until the car is at the VPC, is that correct?

jeffnin 09-05-2012 05:25 PM

Actually, you have to pre-reserve for PCD when you place order. It's noted on your ED paperwork (as well as the separate PCD paperwork that has to be completed) since they have to ship car to Brunswick,GA where it goes through different processing/customs, before trucking to PCD. I'm actually in limbo until the ship docks, since they don't know how long it will take with customs, so they won't schedule a firm pick up date at PCD until closer to arrival. Kind of sucks, since I can't plan my travel arrangements until later in month, once I receive choice of PCD re-delivery dates.

Yes, mine is en route to the Brunswick port too (purchased through Adrian in Atlanta). I never brought up PCD again after my first email to him back in June and I never received any additional paperwork or notes about PCD. I just emailed and he replied (quick response!) that I can still add PCD if I want to but it will add at least 2 weeks; I can't decide...PCD or get the car a couple weeks sooner...

Actually I hope in this case this is true and it is already in a boat coming towards here :)

Only you can decide, but PCD sounds great with the driving clinic and the US factory tour, etc. From everything that I've read in the PCD forum, everyone has had a wonderful experience. It may not be a full 2 weeks difference as they always err on the maximum time frame.

neve1064 09-06-2012 03:39 PM

Just saw that mine is on the Tombarra. Loaded on the ship yesterday. So drop off was on August 21st at CDG and that means it took two weeks to get on a ship. It's scheduled to arrive on September 24th in Brunswick, GA. Then PCD probably 3 weeks after that right? I was expecting a redelivery date around the 30th of October. This might turn out to be sooner! Anyone else on the Tombarra?

Mine still says nothing and I dropped it off on the 17th :( Since you dropped off on the 23rd I am pretty sure it was the same truck that took them to the port. Maybe they do really give preference to the BMWs as far as shipping goes!

I dropped mine off in Zurich on the 21st. Not sure what boat though, will have to check that tonight.

Stavrs 09-08-2012 07:35 AM

The dealer just informed me I am actually on Integrity too (even though it doesn't appear on the WW site)! This is amazing news considering I dropped it off in Paris on 8/17, the ship left 8/28 and arrives 9/15 - so less than a month to come to the US. Will still have customs, VPC and tracking but even if they take 2 weeks we are looking at a redelivery time of less than 6 weeks total!!

It should be at Brunswick now! Lets update the thread when we see customs clearance :)

jeffnin 09-15-2012 11:16 AM

Website still shows en route. It left Charleston yesterday at 16:49, so should be in port in Brunswick later today. Now the "black hole" of customs where we won't be able to track cars or do anything for who knows how long.

2012-09-14 16:49 DEPARTURE CHARLESTON INTEGRITY
