    Talked to someone from ACGI shipping lines dept today, was told July 7th is still expected arrival.

    Bill, the customer manager at WWL
    also responded to my email, said July 7th/8th.

    K-Line’s Texas Highway is arriving this week as well.

    Green Ridge is set to reverse course and head back down to San Diego now from Hueneme... Confused I am.

    Yeah this is nuts. I’ve never had a imported car go on such a expedition before. They’ve all been direct to New West or Tacoma then New West. If the vessel isn’t on it’s way to Tacoma on the 3rd it will be for sure late.

    Green Ridge docked at the San Diego Naval supply base to fulfil some of it’s MSC duties. It finally declared Tacoma as it’s next destination for ETA July 6. On time :) Give your broker a slap on the head.

    Should be on the docks in a couple hours... She’s hauling it, over 20.5 knots. I’ve never witnessed ROROs cruise much faster than 18 typically.

    How’s your customs clearance coming along David? I’m told there is a 2 day delay in WWL sending out the arrival notices/cargo control abstracts...

    Not moving at all at the moment. I'm told there is a backup at the port and that I should expect the car to be available for pickup by Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

    Frustrating being use to having my cars usually cleared within hours of landing in the past.

    Broker got my car cleared this morning. :)

    Are you still getting Livingston to move your vehicle to Edmonton via rail?

    I am. When my broker finally gets around to clearing. Then I suppose I'll have to wait weeks for livingston to move the car....

    What vehicle did you bring in by the way? Maybe dah_hunter can snap a pic when he’s doing pick ups next week.

    Brought in a Copen for my wife - red in colour. She fell in love with them when we were in Osaka last March.

    Just got notice the car is cleared and released. Now to try and get an answer from Livingston to get them to pick up the car.
