    Hi James, nice thread you got here ;).

    I don't suppose you know of anyway to find out what toyota ships are headed to the UK? My Fathers new gen 3 Prius is due in the UK at the end of the month, and was wondering whether we could track it?

    He's got absolutely no details on it, not even a delivery date from the dealer :eek:

    Thanks in advance,
    Dave.

    There is a small group of UKers on this site that seem to have the info your looking for. They had some threads last fall. WW line ships are used I believe. No one has asked before you so I haven't given it much thought. I'll bet your ship sailed mid December.

    Ok James thanks anyway, I've been tracking a likely suspect in otello/othello(SBLW) which appears, to me, to have left Japan around the 1st Dec and arrives in Bristol tomorrow(mon). I guess we'll never know for sure.

    ps. just checked the otello is indeed a WW line ship ;)

    Hi James,

    Thank you for providing this tracking info. I wonder if you can help me track the car my dealer (Toyota of Manhattan) said I would be getting around mid March. It is a Prius V just with NAV. He faxed me the VIR however, somewhat incomplete. The ship he said it is arriving on, is the New Century 2. That info is on the VIR. He said it would arrive about 3/9/10; I would think at an East coast port. He didn't know which port. However, he said it left Japan around 2/9. The ship date is not on the VIR. He told me he knows the ship date (2/9) from distribution? A partial VIN# is on the VIR: the last 8 numbers. (However, I was able to get the complete VIN# from the regional office.)
    The category of the car status is A and it has been allocated to his dealership.

    I have used your links to track it and as far as I could find out about this ship was that is was expected to arrive in Panama on Jan. 2, 2010.

    The only other info I have is one report generated about the vessels daily itinerary: that on 2010-02-18 it was tracked at a certain Long/Lat in the Pacific near Hawaii?

    I made a deposit on this car (originally SBM but was told color was unavailable) for $500 on 12/18/09. I was told over the last two months their allocation has not come in. When I asked for my deposit back recently and that I can no longer wait for a car, within about 24 hours they got me this prospect of a car. (He said he made a swap for this car which was originally allocated to a dealership in Va.) What I also wonder about is that the VIN serial #'s are very low in sequence compared to other cars available now. The dealer agreed with me that this car was built around 10/09. I just wonder where this car was since then and why it wasn't shipped sooner to the US? Sorry to go on like this.

    Bottom line, can you see if the New Century 2 is bound for the East Coast sometime around March 9?

    Thank you.

    I was wondering if someone could help me track the Overseas Joyce. My wife has been patiently waiting for her Lexus Hybrid to arrive and is barely able to contain herself so I was hoping that we can try to figure out when the car would be getting into port since the dealer isn't much help. Thanks

    Hi James - I searched for this info but to no avail. My dealer tells me that my car is at the Port of Los Angeles. Does Toyota even use the Port of LA? I know that Toyota uses the Port of Long Beach and it is right next door. Is it possible that a dealer could look at their screens and not know this info? Thanks.

    James, I ordered a 2020 Red Prius Prime Limited. ship date is 9-18-2019 ETA 9-30-2019 I'm assuming it will come into the west coast of USA because I'm in Farmington Hills Michigan. Can you help me pinpoint the exact ship it's on?
