2023 Shipping Movements

Tuesday 31 Jan 23 SUMMARY

I am hoping to see a UK bound ship depart in the next day or two, assuming Tesla have anticipated the UK's big annual 01 Mar sales spike. (For non-UK readers, this is when the 2023 number plate will be issued and so accordingly March is the peak month for new car sales and 01 Mar is the busiest day) I suspect a lot of cars from GRAND MARK will sit around until 01 Mar.

MSC IMMACOLATA ETA Southampton 08 Feb A very quick load at Shanghai South makes me think she may only have 2000-2500 cars at max onboard. She is now in the Med and my calculated estimate of 08 Feb has been confirmed. Whether the Port of Southampton can accomodate her then is another matter and we should find that out on Friday.

DONG-A GLAUCOS ETA Barcelona 09 Feb (Looks to be on same itinerary as BOHEME)

LAKE KIVU ETA Zeebrugge 17 Feb.

GRAND MARK ETA Southampton 16 Feb. Currently enroute to Suez ETA 07 Feb - note my revised estimate for her ETA in Southampton.

HOEGH TRAPPER ETA Zeebrugge 22 Feb

Coming the other way is DREAM ORCHID Zeebrugge - Taipei (8 Feb)

You can follow the ships on this map. It is quite unique in that it is free despite being updated via satellite with the latest data available, unlike others on the internet with 'periodic' updates.

Warwickshire. I thought it seemed unlikely myself. Also doesn’t appear to be a mention of any ships into uk beyond the 2 in feb (looking through the thread)
Yeah. I was offered delivery on 23rd Feb Glasgow) and pretty sure my car is on Grand Mark (due Southampton around 16th Feb). So about a week to offload and transport to delivery location.
