It happens and especially now as they're trying to ship less cars to the US. Probably scheduling/securing less space on ships now too.

How did you find out that you are on the HEIJIN? I cant see where to enter my vin number on the NYK website? I dropped my car off on 2/20. I'm hoping they didnt put me on that same boat.

Well... according to my CA my car is due in port in mid april. This means that I must be on the same boat. SO- my car took 26 days to get on a boat...

Lame. My first ED redelivery took exactly a month. Times have changed.

You can call Harms office in US or email them and they will let you know which boat you are on. Heijin is supposed to dock at San Diego on April 8. http://www.sdmis.org/schedule/ however the Harms ppl say it's scheduled for April 18.

Even my car took about 20 days to get on the boat. Can't they transfer cars by planes, LOL

If the HEIJIN departs Munich you will not see it this year, because it will take at least that long for the canal to be dug.

Arrival time?? It all depends

Heijin reached final destination :D :D
This is not so necessarily. I bought my new 335i in Northern California and it shipped from Bremerhaven on March 13 on the Heijin. I have follwed it daily at http://aprs.fi/info/353788000. It stopped in San Diego and then on to Long Beach. It left Long Beach area and was offshore last evening at 0839 zulu and it is about 40 miles [46 NM] from off Pacific Paladades to Port Hueneme where the North California products will be offloaded. The ETA for Port Hueneme was 0600 PDT today, April 13, 2009

It was at Port Hueneme on 04/10. I saw it docked and it looked like they were unloading cars using http://aprs.fi. After a few hours the vessel went back 40miles into the sea.

Do they wrap the cars in white cloth or something like that. All the cars looked white (top view), and I will be surprised if they were carrying a lot more white cars than any other color.
