On Liberty Ace (but going to US West Coast)

Quick background for everyone ...

- My 2013 BMW 335i xDrive, built in SA, was originally on Serenity Ace
- Serenity Ace stopped in Bremerhaven where my vehicle has been offloaded (learned about it later)
- The dealer system still shows the vehicle on-board Serenity Ace, but Serenity Ace sailed to Tema, Ghana and it's impossible for my vehicle to physically be on Serenity Ace

The dealer system indicated 2/15 arrival in Port Hueneme and a few days ago changed to 2/22.

The question: on what vessel is my vehicle? What triggered the date change?

The only US-West Coast vessel right now is Dionysos Leader, scheduled to arrive in Port Hueneme on 2/15. But the arrival date, according to the dealer, is 2/22. Dionysos Leader is not the vessel, then.

I decided to contact MOL (Mitsui O.S.K. Lines) and provided bill of lading number.

My vehicle is on Liberty Ace going first to US-East Coast first and then to US-West Coast. Schedule:

- Bremerhaven: left on 1/22
- Brunswick: due to arrive on 2/5
- Panama Canal: transiting on 2/13
- Long Beach: due to arrive 2/21
- Port Hueneme: due to arrive 2/22

Now the arrival date provided by the dealer - 2/22 - matches the Liberty Ace arrival date provided by MOL.

I hope this helps everyone.

For some reason, the dealer systems do not update the vessel name if the vehicle has been offloaded and placed on another vessel during the transit.

Liberty Ace is now anchored in Baltimore, a day later than expected. Wondering if the entire itinerary may shift, delaying arrival in Port Hueneme.

There is another ship in California. Mine is on Felicity Ace (SA build). Originally scheduled for 2/6, then 2/8 and now 2/11. Hits long beach on 2/10 before Port Hueneme on 2/11.

OC40,

Was your vehicle transshipped, i.e offloaded and placed on another vessel while in transit from SA? Mine was but the dealer's system still shows the original vessel traveling from Durban to Bremerhaven.

I'm not sure. My dealer found it for me when it was already in transit.

You can find the full schedule at molroro.com

Best site for tracking thus far.

Liberty Ace left Brunswick, GA; now in transit to Cartagena, Colombia. Panama Canal is the next stop. May be a little late. The original date - transiting through Panama Canal - was 2/13.
