    Do we know any kind of stats on how many people have ordered/waiting on cars in the UK? 100 cars a week just seems quite low to me, but I know nothing about car logistics!

    It depends on the delivery centre - 100 a week from Edinburgh would be quite respectable whereas West Drayton has easily achieved 100 a day.

    And many of us know how they achieve that... it wouldn't be so easy if they did it properly.

    Isn’t the cosmos on its way to San Diego?

    Yes and after that it may head up to Pier 80.
    On the horizon we have Morning Conductor arriving at Pier 80 on 15 Jan and the Glovis Challenge arriving on 21 Jan.
    I'm still hopeful that a ship will squeeze in before the Morning Conductor - the Cosmos

    To be honest I’m bitterly disappointed that my car won’t be coming on the dong a glaucos. Just because that’s the coolest name ever.

    Out in San Francisco at the moment so thought I’d take an early morning stroll down to pier 80 and have a looksee. Transporters loaded with 3’s and X’s arriving every few minutes. All the ones I saw were LHD. Couldn’t see quite how many were already on the site but room for hundreds more.

    Disappointed to note that the Glovis Cosmos is heading to Benicia after San Diego.
    Still some hope that it can cross the bay to Pier 80 after that though.

    Getting worried that our late Jan, early Feb m3sr+ may not be getting here on time!

    Well you can be sure it isn't going to be a late January delivery.

    Maybe the cosmos is holding at Benicia since the us navy is occupying pier 80?

    According to “the spreadsheet” the next ship due at Pier 80 is the Morning Conductor, arriving on 17th. If it’s heading to Europe it won’t arrive until the second week in February. Not a good start to the year.

    @Mr Miserable interesting your view is the S/X are coming in complete rather than as ‘parts’ to Tilburg to avoid the 10% import tax.

    It certainly cuts the journey time down as the rail crossing to Houston took a lifetime.

    I had my production/delivery timeline down to within 3 days and was bang on it. That was 3 years ago and much has changed though.

    The ships are beginning to rollup!

    Glovis Cosmos will start to load tomorrow (15th) and is due to depart on Fri 17th. That means an approximate Zeebrugge arrival of 7 Feb.
    Next to load is Morning Conductor which, IMHO, is unlikely to be EU bound.
    Glovis Challenge is next and scheduled to depart on Fri 24th. That would mean Zeebrugge around 14 Feb.
    Next to load is Brooklands departing on the 28th, not sure where it's going, and then the Grand Mark departing on 1 Feb (Zeebrugge 22 Feb).

    All those February deliveries will be hectic!

    The Brooklands is scheduled in Europe in March so it is crossing the Atlantic but the timings don't look quite right for a Tesla shipment. More research required on this one.

    The Tesla GB's user site (sign in) is down at the moment. Could this be due to allocating VIN numbers for the February delivery?

    It's not been noted before so I wouldn't think so.

    More likely they're plugging the 'vin checking' hack!

    Will any of the ships be going to Southampton after Zeebrugge?
