Looks like my xc90 was delivered to the Port in New York last week. Generally, what have you guys found is the timing from port delivery off the cargo ship to arrival at the dealer?

Mine arrived in the port of Newark on 11/22.

4 Days later it updated to show "Discharged" although the date was the date the ship was here.

Finally shows "Delivered" From 12/3.

Still has not arrived at dealer as of 12/7.

(Dealer about 20 minutes from the port)

For us it was about 1 week from Baltimore port delivery to Dealer. This all depends on a variety of factors: prep of the vehicle, customs clearance, and also truck transport availability. Truck transports like to fill their trucks and logistically want vehicles to be delivered on their planned routes. Others have had different experiences due to recalls and the port also makes a difference.

I think it really depends on how far your dealer is from the port and how lucky you are with the truck that will carry your car.

4 to 15 days.

Many factors control the delivery to retailer, such as: quality upgrades, distance from port, accessories (if applicable), how many cars are going to that area (for example, if your retailer only has 2 cars scheduled to be delivered to them and not any other cars going to neighboring stores, the truck will not leave port until a full truck load is configured), etc.

Let me give you our timeline:

10.13.2015 - Customs Release; the car arrived at the port in Baltimore.

10.21.2015 - Liner Release; I don't know what that means nor our agent but he speculate that that could be when the car was unloaded from the ship.

11.10.2015 - The day we got the car. The car arrived at the dealership 11.07.2015, but we didn't picked it up right away.

So ours took 25 days from arriving at the port to the dealer. They usually say it'll take max of 10days from port to dealership but form our experience it takes more than that, we have another order on the way and we are still waiting for the dealer to receive it.

2nd order timeline:

11.25.2015 - Customs Release

11.27.2015 - Liner Release

I may be wrong in interpreting these information, Volvo dealers have a different set of codes that they receive regarding an order but again the time frame they give is usually very conservative. I stopped texting our agent regarding the status of our car because my wife says so. haha! But you may wanna check with them once in a while to see if they have the car already.

I'm in the New York area, just north is the City so not a perfect comparison. Mine got into port on a Friday, dealer had it the following Wednesday and could be prepped for my pickup by the Friday (although we picked it up on Saturday). So all-in, one week from port to ready.

My car was also on the ship Toronto which arrived in Baltimore on November 28, 2015. It has been 9 days since it was off-loaded, and still has not arrived at the dealer in Chicago.

What dealer do you go to? I'm from Chicago too and if you read my post it may take longer than 10 days before you get the car but I would advise you to call your dealership and ask.

Fields Volvo. The dealer expected it to arrive at their facility on December 5, 2015, but still hasn't. Hope it doesn't take 25 days, as it did for you.

Interesting that GPS made it possible to track the car from the time it left the port in Sweden (November 1, 2015) until it arrived at the port in Baltimore (November 28, 2015). Once it was off-loaded from the ship, no tracking has been possible. Even the dealer doesn't know its ETA. I wonder if Volvo headquarters knows.

No tracking for you (once it is offloaded from the vessel); the retailer can track its progress from their system.

Thanks for the replies, everyone.

Anyone else's XC90 on the vessel AIDA and offloaded in New York? If so, do you have status on your vehicle? My dealer is useless....

In my case, car arrived in Port Hueneme, CA on Nov. 11, 2015, liner release/customs release/delivered from on Nov 17. Picked up from SF Bay Area dealer on Nov 23, although it arrived at dealer at least 2 or 3 days earlier.
