Yes, the report I print daily tells me when vehicles are released to trucking.

Jon - you sort of answered a question I had. My vehicle actually wasn't dropped off in Baltimore when California Highway stopped there - it went on to the VPC in Brunswick, GA on 8/15. I've read that it could be there 2 to 3 days. I'm anxiously waiting to hear from my Salesman to find out when its loaded onto a truck to head to Tampa. This is killing me.

The BMW website has updated my status to "Finishing Touches". Hopefully there is no shipping damage to my car, and it will end up on a truck soon.

The 800# still says the my vehicle as at the port awaiting a shipping vessel, so the website is more accurate than the 800#, for once.
