Galveston Highway July 23 Departure

Just found out the my M235i has been booked on the K-Line ship Galveston Highway leaving Bremerhaven on July 23. ETA for Brunswick, GA is August 7.

I dropped off July 1 in Zurich.

Currently, the Galveston Highway is at Charleston. So it has to go back across the pond to pick up my car.

Anyone else booked on the same vessel?

I just dropped off July 11 in Munich. Also shipping to GA. How do I know if I'll be on that ship/scheduled arrival?

You can email loginout in Munich. Usually suggested to wait a week or so after drop off.

You can check online at the following web page:

Looks like Zurich is about 10-15 days slower than Munich.

According to the K Line website, the ship's on its way from Charleston to Bremerhaven. It'll reach Bremerhaven on July 24.

What is Contract ID at http://jcars.blg.de/wps/portal/extern/exportinfo/ ? Thanks

I couldn't find the ID on the paperwork I got from Gondrand in Zurich. Someone mentioned that the Munich dropoff paperwork has it.

I emailed Log In Out Munich and got the Contract ID but the combination with VIN does not work. It says Invalid Contract ID. Mine is scheduled for Brasilia Highway, which is scheduled to sail 6 days later on 7/31. Would be nice to get on Galveston Highway.

Looks like departure date changed in the last day. It showed July 24 before.

Did you do European delivery?

The ship has now disappeared into the Atlantic Ocean. Wondering if I should spend $17 for satellite tracking.

Talked to my CA today. He still doesn't have the ship info. Interesting that BMW Special Sales told me which ship my car was booked on 2 weeks ago and the ship left Bremerhaven on Friday.

It's weird that the BMWNA phone automated status still doesn't show my car as being shipped. Did it accidentally get left off the ship in Bremerhaven?

Galveston highway

This being my second delivery the wait is no less painful.
The login folks in Munich usually are completely accurate with their info. The biggest unknown is time at vpc.
My previous car needed a new rim and spent 3 weeks at vpc.
