    So the Glovis Cosmos has left Pier 80 bound for the Panama Canal and therefore ,it is assumed, Zeebrugge.
    I think we are looking at an arrival at Zeebrugge around 8 Feb - it all depends on how long the ship is kept waiting for its transit through the Panama Canal. This would mean the first cars being scheduled for UK delivery around 12 Feb onwards.
    The folk that lurk around Pier 80 have not reported seeing many RHD cars being loaded onto the Cosmos although there are RHD cars on the pier at the moment. The next ship to load is the Morning Conductor - it is just entering the port now. There is no information as to where this ship is bound for at the moment - it could be Japan.

    Hey all, just registered. Lease company ballsed my order up, meaning that despite their receiving my order in September, they only actually placed the order for my base spec LR in white 10 days ago. Fingers crossed several times that I get mine in Feb...

    I'm glued to this thread

    This is a great thread and love the slow-motion boat drama :)

    Wonder if mine is on a boat or still being hatched. Tension !

    Just read this in Twitter re the Globus Cosmos! Hoping that our car is on there somewhere!

    "Let me elaborate on the VIN: As it is the first ship for Europe since long time, it is a good opportunity to reset the theory about VIN allocation 7-10 days after departure, usually during Panama's canal passage
    If you are expecting a car in EU and get an hidden VIN, let me know!"

    Yes I think so, people have also said that the model 3 VIN will start with 5YJ so you could do a search for that.

    OK Model 3 VINs are 5YJ3. You can find that out on other threads - not the shipping movements thread. There is no hidden code that reveals what ship your car is on. However I have it on good authority that your cars are on the Morning Conductor.

    In what must be a record for the shortest time loading, the Morning Conductor has left Pier 80 for Korea.
    Plenty of cars left on the dock for the next ship, the Glovis Challenge, which is still a couple of days away.

    I have a newfound appreciation for living in Los Angeles County now and the same state as Tesla HQ. :) Hope all of the Tesla export vehicles make it over safe and sound!

    Perhaps that’s Mr Miserables sense of humour.
    I’ve read a lot of his posts and he seems to be a legend.

    OK I'll bite.
    Guadeloupe is not the same as Guadalupe.
    The Glovis Cosmos will pass the latter (population ~200)
    Guadeloupe (population ~ 400,000) is in the Caribbean and not near the proposed track of the Cosmos.
