VIN ONLY

Is there anything I can do with use a VIN number? Also the CA gave me, what she called, a port "SSIPOA". Does that mean anything to anyone?

Well, if you are trying to track an incoming car? A site I got off the tracking guide instantly helped. https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...uickSearchPage. Just stick the full VIN no spaces in the Cargo ID section and that will let you know whether or not it has tracking info yet. The vehicle will show up as far as I can tell, if it is shipped through this company it should show up once the vehicle leaves the factory for the port. That's all I got. The BMW owner circle as well, if your not already tracking it through bmwusa.com. Also I have no idea what SSIPOA is.

Thank you for that info. My problem is the CA is new and is working her way through all this herself. I am patient as we all have to start somewhere.

Using the site information "att.2wg..." provided it indicates there is no information on my vehicle. The next scheduled departure from Bremerhaven to Brunswick is 4/25 to dock 5/14. Hopefully my car will be in that shipment. Production was finished on 4/7.

Thank you everyone for your assistance.

Your salesperson can get the name of the ship carrying your car once it gets loaded IE: Florida Highway (carried my car). Then I googled that ship name as "ship florida highway" to get it's sailing data and from there was able to easily track the ship. First result on Google was a site that tracked that ship. There were probably 4 or 5 other sites that could be used also, though some were pay sites. I found that method to work much better than trying to track it by the vehicle VIN.

terrapen73: Thank you for that suggestion. When I finally receive the ships name I will do just that.
