I seem to remember a post by J Spira last year something to the effect that due to some German law a car had to sit at the loading dock for 5 days before it can be loaded onto a ship. It sounds crazy, but this is what I seem to remember. I tried searching for this post but couldn't find anything, but trying to come up with the search terms returned a lot of results.

I know that our car was dropped off at LOGINOUT at the Munich airport 25 May 2012 and wasn't loaded on the faust until 4 June 2012, 10 days later. I think that the loading date was shown on the WWL site. I also seem to remember that the information didn't show up on the WWL site until at least two days after the boat left the dock.

I created an extensive tracking thread for our car starting in May last year if anyone wants to search for it.

ETA: Here's the link: It was fun to go back and read! I sure did spend a lot of time tracking the car!
