More shipping delays?

Just curious if anyone else is dealing with this. I was told by Ford that my truck was supposed to be delivered between July 23-29. Now my dealer tells me today that Ford told them August 6th now as of this morning. I ask why the hell the date has changed and I was told shipping delays because of the weather in the Midwest. Funny because a week ago I was told it was already on a railcar and headed out this way.

This may or may not find out any info more than what the dealer has told you....it may work with VIN, if not, try getting order number and Dealer code. Might not tell you anything more than dealer

Ford Custom Order Tracking | ordertracking.ford.com

know it took for ever to finally get my 15. Scheduled to deliver 28 May....finally arrived 30 June. And that was after a lot of complaining to Ford CS and the dealer calling also. I also called Norfolk Southern with the VIN asking them to check also. After all the complaining to Ford CS, they are suppose to be sending me the Prem Maintenance for free to cover 3 years or 45k miles.

There are very real logistic issues on the rails these days with the increasing shipments of crude oil through the mid continent region particularly from the Bakken Shale in NODAK and MT down south to the refining centers. They are competing with coal and "normal freight". Meanwhile, Warren Buffett is laughing all the way to the bank.

I know it is frustrating, many have us have been there. However, it was not supposed to be there then.. that was an ETA, nothing is locked in stone. It is rare for an ETA to not be adjusted as it travels across the country and then for the shipping companies at the rail yards to then adjust their times.

It vary well could be on the rail, your dealer can see that in the computer but again, does not mean the arriving rail yard/port is not backed up. I would never trust an ETA that is projecting 3 weeks out, too many variables.

Mine was shipped early. Built June 19th. Shipped June 23rd. Arrived at Fort Worth Railyard from July 5th, sat on the yard until July 11th. Picked it up from the dealer July 11th in the evening. My buddies truck on the other hand was built 3 weeks before mine and he has yet to see his truck. Strange how some trucks come quick and some take forever.

Just wondering... Was your truck entered in when you ordered it as a sold order?

I ordered mine May 30th and have yet to receive it. Now I am starting to wonder if something happened to it during transit like some of the others on here.
