It took nearly three weeks, but the automated systems finally admit my car is in transit.

My car was loaded onto the Swift Ace in SA about Nov 22. I was informed of that by my CA. Until today, the automated systems claimed my car was sitting at the port waiting for transport. Right now, my car is somewhere in the North Sea, about a week away from Bremerhaven. Will arrive at California Jan 14.

There's room for improvement.

Same boat Takes a while to go through the Panama Canal, with a few other stops along the way.

Of course, this assumes our cars remain on the boat at Bremerhaven.

According to Marinetraffic.com Swift Ace is due to arrive in Bremerhaven on Thursday/Friday. According to MOL website, the ship will arrive in Bremerhaven on Dec 17th. Here's link: http://www.molroro.com/MOLVesselSchedule.aspx. I'll assume the MOL website is more accurate.

Just hope your car is not offloaded. If it is, it could add days or up to 2 weeks before re-load.

Assuming you are not offloaded, Swift Ace should arrive to US East coast before New Years.

Are there any other shipping companies that BMW uses out of SA?

I've know of W&W and MOL.
