Can someone who has received their car and who tracked their order on palsapp.com describe what they saw at different stages?

Does palsapp cover a) the journey from Mexico to KC, b) the journey from KC to my local rail distribution point, or c) both?

I'm not expecting delivery until the end of March. But palsapp still shows pending (the origin is listed as Kansas City; the destination is null). Does that mean it's still in Mexico? Or is it in KC and just waiting to be shipped to my regional rail center?

Has your Mach-E been built yet? Mine is in production but I have the same info at palsapp as this.

Pals is the trucking company taking the MME from the train yard to the rails. When you see it delivered it’s at the next part of the journey. Sometimes they are also the last mile transport. It’s not really a tracking source, just one or two points if the journey. Ask your dealer to share with you the details from Ford Vehicle visibility which they have access to.

Palsapp shows pending until it reaches KC. Null was shown for me until it was in transit then pending. It changed to delivered after it transferred to Muncie ramp. That’s it. For those where JC is the last leg or mid leg transfer it may show additional lines. It has not been updating well recently so hard to tell what is going on.
Yours shipped 2/6 so minimum 14 days to KC so it’s not clear what’s up but may be VV has more details.
Its like mirror or Erised in HP... many a people have gone mad staring at it.

Do all cars go from Mexico to KC before they go anywhere else?

Apologize if this has been answered previously....but I'm a little confused about Palsapp. What exactly does "dispatched" mean? Mine was "pending" for the longest time and then yesterday the Destination changed to Enterprise Lot, and the "Dispatched on 3/1/21" showed up. Does dispatched mean it's most likely in KC still, or does it mean it could be anywhere between there and its final destination (Nashville)? I did see some others' status have said Delivered but wasn't clear on if that meant delivered to the trucking company, or delivered to the dealer!

I think that just means that it was moved to another lot in KC. Doesn't really tell you much.

Mine finally updated showing delivered today 3/2 to Muncie Ramp. How many days did it take from here to make the trip out west and ultimately to Encinitas Ford?

It took 14 days for my vehicle but I would say it’s between 14 to 20 days. I have seen some that have taken up the 20 days.

From the factory, the car goes by train (KC Southern) to a train yard in KC. It now needs to go to a different railroad ramp, it gets from one ramp to the other on a truck, then gets back on a different train like perhaps BNSF, it then travels to some local ramp near your dealer. Sometimes it just goes by truck rather than another train. palsapp Jack Cooper mostly carries our cars a few miles between one railroad ramp to another one. What you see is just a little piece of the puzzle in palsapp. The railroads are disjointed and the trucks fill in the gaps.

Here is what I saw:

VIN shows in Palsapp with status "Pending" with no destination. This was before my car left the factory.
Once the car arrived in KC, the status remained "Pending", but the destination is now filled in. In my case, the destination was my dealer. I'm close enough to KC that another train ride was not needed. Otherwise, the destination will show one of the 'ramps' which is the boarding point for the next train.
When the car leaves on the truck, the status changes to "Dispatched".
When the car is unloaded from the truck, the status changes to "Delivered".
There have been reports of Palsapp never getting updated - the car shows up at the dealer with the status still "Pending".

So, I am in Atlanta, and my palsapp shows Origin of Atlanta, Destination is "-" and destination name is null and status is Pending. That seems kind of odd

I know it's not to KC yet, according to the VIN tracker it only shipped on 2/25. This is not a pre-order, it was destined for the dealer's lot but I bought it after walking in before they got it

also, does anyone have any insight into the dates on the tracker? What is the Recept, ETA End, and Transit dates below? What do they mean?

Receipt Date2020-08-08
ETA End Date2021-04-03
Production Date2020-10-29
Ship Date2021-02-25
Transit Date16

I reordered them chronologically - if there can be any logic to some of these dates:

Receipt = Reservation converted to order or the Dealer Order date
Production Date: Car is built and is awaiting shipment
Ship Date: Car is on a train to KC
Transit Date: Mysterious number that sometimes looks like the total number of days from Ship Date to ETA End Date - but like in your case (16) it doesn't add up.
ETA End Date: Estimated date that the car will be delivered to the dealer. Luckily this date has been up to 10 days earlier for some
