But how do you know the names of the ships that VW uses?

I tracked my Ioniq a while back and there was a website which showed shipping schedules for the shipping company Hyundai used. It took nearly 2 months to get to the UK!
Over time you get to know them. They use "Highway" such as Ems, Weser, Isar, Neckar Highway mainly for Grimsby. The larger "Highway" ships like Thames and Malacca Highway are used to go into Sheerness and the City of Oslo, Rotterdam and St Petersburg run to Grimsby and Tyne.
There are the odd few other ships used also.
On order 1.7.21 - ID.3 Tour 77kWh Pro S 204PS Tour Manganese Grey
2.7.21 Stage 2 With the Factory
3.9.21 Stage 3 Confirmed Build week 39

Don't.forget City of Rome and City of Paris for Tyne. They're very regular - Leave Emden with VAG cars, head to Tyne (often directly), drop them off, pick up Sunderland built Nissans, take them up to Helsinki, Back to Tyne, pick up more Nissans, take them to Amsterdam/Ijmuiden, back to Emden for more VAGs.

Turnaround at Tyne Dock is very quick to get cars Customs released and to the local Lookers/Pulman dealerships.

I see the City of Rotterdam has actually just left Emden for Grimsby.

Hi everyone, been reading this board since ordering on 2nd July, just thought I would update with my order progress as well.

ID3 Tour Pro S - Ordered 2nd July
BW 34 w/c 23rd August

Latest update from VW UK live chat as of today is car is at Emden awaiting ship. Looking at about 12 weeks from order to delivery, so seems like good going compared to most.

Nice. Do you know if this was a full on factory order (mine was) or whether your dealer already had one on back order that was allocated to you ? Our order went in a couple weeks after yours, and it’s going to be at least week 40 before it goes into assembly, if not later.

It was a factory order, got the order number about a week after ordering. Seems likely it was an unallocated car dealer already had on order given the speed with which it seems to be coming through compared to others who ordered at the same time.

Hi all

Placed an order for Tour Pro S in Moonstone on 9th September and currently being told will be early March 2022 for delivery, no confirmed dates just what dealership is advising. Question, are others being told minimum of 6 months and if so is this accurate or are they coming earlier/later?

Many thanks Zobware

Spoke to the live chat yesterday and still no build week confirmation. Little bit concerned because my dealer had said build week 40 was the preliminary date, but obviously it would be confirmed now for week 40..

Same convo with dealer he advised factory confirmation is 4 weeks ahead of actual build, usually updated on a Monday. This week is week 35. So confirmation should be on Monday for a wk40.... fingers crossed!

Current calendar week is 36 and people who had confirmation last Friday were for build week 39. Unless the factory doesn’t count the first calendar week?

Fingers crossed indeed! Getting a little impatient now, want rid of my current car ASAP. :D
