Yes I would think if has a ship date and in transit then it's off to the docks in time.
Think this is going to catch my dealer out. I phoned another dealer today about something completely different, but in passing mentioned the Mach e. His answer was. Think we are looking at Sept/Oct before where be seeing any of them.

Or they aren't concerned about the time.it takes to get to us. The cars getting on the ship tonight are due to get to England on 6th May and will be with the dealers a week or so after that.
Now that could be their way of protecting themselves if things go slower than they hope, but I'm not so sure.
Have the cars that were on the first ship over made it to the UK yet?
Where did you get the 6th May from? The ship is due to Antwerp on 15th March. I can't believe Ford would have them sitting in Antwerp for another 7 weeks. They are going to want to get paid for them asap.

I think it was that date I was given around end of Jan for delivery and then you and wonky checked with your dealers and found your dates had changed to that?

A date from Vista. A very estimated date.

Then soon after the sun did their review and printed deliveries "march" !

I like your dates far more
I think Ford are just being overly cautious. Dealers can only tell you what they see on vista which comes from Ford. IF some cars are on the Grande Houston then it doesn't make any sense to withhold them from customers for any longer than necessary.

If @Wonky_Donkey can work his magic and track the VINs as they are loaded on the ship at Veracruz, and then again at Antwerp then we will know for sure!

Go Wonky!

Sorry, I mean after Antwerp?
Don't know where she is going after Antwerp apart from she is not programmed to go to Southampton or any other main UK port. But then that could all change
