United-States West Coast Delivery Timeline

Our F56 Mini Cooper Hardtop was delivered to the US on the Fedora, arriving at Port Hueneme, CA on June 26, 2014.

I will update this, until we get the car at our dealership; and will include links to find these websites, once this sight allows me to.

Below I've included a timeline of California shipping, I loved the ships website tracking and the website Marine Tracking dot com...and I don't mean Mini's website. They are sorely slow at updating their site.

To track most west coast shipments, go to Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) Cargo Shippingat and put in your VIN#(found on Mini Owners Lounge Website), under "Cargo ID". That's how you can find what ship your car is on, and it's estimated delivery time. Someone in Utah had their car delivered on the NYK line, to Port Hueneme youcan go to NYK line to see if you car is on that cargo shipping line.

For ours, it was on the Fedora with WWL. Can't wait till it gets here. Ours will be delivered to Niello Mini in Sacramento, CA.

Ours is a 2014 Mini Hardtop, Volcanic Orange with White roof and strips.

I've been talking with someone that is getting their BMW delivered on the same ship, it's been nice sharing the experience and living vicariously through our cars trip across the oceans, together. See pictures of going through Panama Locks, which was fun to watch.

So far here's the time table(I'll update until we get the car):
May 15, 2014
Ordered, got a Production # and Vin # two days later
May 24, 2014
9 days from order to delivery by train to Southhampton Port to await transport onto ship.
June 04, 2014
Loaded onto Fedora Cargo Ship (This was the first shipment available)
June 05, 2014
Left Southhampton
June 06, 2014
Out of range to track across the Atlantic
June 12, 2014
Finally! Could start tracking just outside of Puerto Rico (this day is when Mini updated its owners lounge to say it was in transport) That was a long wait.
Coming up to Panama Canal
10:46 Arrived in Manzanillo Bay, outside Panama Canal (just outside the Gatun Locks-the first of three locks.)
June 18, 2014
04:02 Left Manzanillo Bay;
13:08 Gatun Lock entry (will take 7.5 hours from here to exit of Miraflores lock, the last of three locks)
15:02 Gatun Lock exit
15:02 Enter Panama Canal
19:25 Pedro Miguel Locks enter
20:05 Pedro Miguel Locks exit
20:24 Miraflores Locks enter
21:40 Miraflores Locks exit
20:20 Enters Gulf of Panama, headed for Pacific Ocean (stopped being able to track it)
June 23, 2014
Finally showing on tracking! Just below Puerto Vallarta. That was a long wait.
June 25, 2014
21:45 Officially in American Waters in southern tip of California
June 26, 2014
06:40 Docked at Port Hueneme, California (21 days after leaving Southhampton, England)
Our car is on land!!
June 27, 2014
09:30 Ship left Port Hueneme, CA to it's next port in Tacoma, WA. Our cars are firmly on land, and being taken through the Vehicle Distribution Center final checks and repairs if anything is needed.
June 29, 2014
20:03 Mini Lounge updated to show "At Distribution Center" and the details section showed estimated delivery July 4, 2014. So...I guess we'll see, but at least it was a change!
