Starting this thread for those of us who want to better understand the shipping process from Melfi to the United States & share this information. I know the vehicles are shipped out of the port of Salerno. I have been trying to track ships on the http://www.marinetraffic.com site.

1. Does anyone know of a better way to track?
2. Does anyone know if they are specifically on vehicle carrier ships or can they be on Ro Ro also?
3. Do they specifically use Italian ships or can it be any ship?
4. Will they always go the same route to the US, or go to other countries first, or both?
5. For those of us on the west coast, will they always go by ship around the US to the west coast, or would they ever unload them on the east coast & truck them across?
6. For those of you that have already received your vehicles, I know some of you mentioned you knew what ship your vehicle was on... how did you learn this information?

I figured mine out on marinetraffic.com, It came into the port of Halifax, Nova Scotia, took them 6 hours to unload what they had to and then the ship carried on to NYC. It was on the CSCC Shanghai. I would look under CSCC in the search on marinetraffic to find what car carrier ships there were and went from there.

I have been wondering some of the same things Eileen. I also wonder how long it takes to make the trip across the pond. I am guessing a few weeks or so.

Thanks for posting this - I was about to do the same :)

I was told by the dealer Friday before last that mine was on a boat on the way to San Diego and ETA for it to arrive THERE was 4 weeks. Not sure how long it would take after that - we are in Seattle. I would love to be able to stock it for the rest of its journey.

She has now told me that the 2015 production has stopped and that my order will now be a 2016 model and have another 60 day wait. I'm not sure what is going on, any help will be greatly appreciated. Oh and I'm in ontario Canada.

She just called me back and said it looks like my Jeep is in phase 3 of the 5 step process. I am guessing this is D1. She said they will monitor closely and let me know if anything changes.

Pasted from another post on this fourm:

Edit2: ah, here's an article that sort of explains why --> http://www.automotivelogisticsmagazi...-europe-and-us

Explains what might be happening with some of the shipping.... It's great that they are looking at ways to expedite shipping which will really be helpful as they produce more & more vehicles. I was amazing that a carrier can hold 25,000 vehicles.... blew my lil pee brain mind!

So I take it that cars shipped from Melfi go to Baltimore on the east coast and from there get to the west coast by truck, train or by another boat from Baltimore via the Panama Canal? Anyone Know?

They go by ship via Panama Canal to the west coast & think it takes about another week. I have about 7-8 ships I'm tracking to see what they end up doing. They do make other stops along the way...

This might provide some additional insight -> https://www.portofsandiego.org/mari...o-celebrates-arrival-of-fiat-automobiles.html

Thing is, the article mentions use of NYK Lines to bring Fiat to San Diego, but I don't see that NYK has a route there directly from Antwerp for ro-ro -> http://www.nykroro.com/customer/trade-maps.html#3-round-the-world-rtw-service
