OK Folks, I did a bit of Tesla shipping tracking when my Tesla was on its way so I have a little logic in this department, from some research on other media I think I now have details of the next shipment!

If you're estimated delivery is late Sept or October here you go!


Ship name - Carmen (Wallenius Wilhelmsen)
Departs Lianyungang (China) 10th August
Hits Piraeus (Greece) 3rd September (I have been told this is when UK customers start to get offered a proper delivery slot)
Arrives Zeebrugge 11th September.

UK RHD cars will be cross loaded onto a smaller Ro-Ro ship from here

Arrives Bremerhaven (Germany) 15th September when its current mission ends.

The Ro-Ro ships that are large can have up to 6,000 vehicles on them, of course they might not all be Polestars!

Have fun!

This has got me going again on the Polestar rollercoaster but we were given an October estimate but that got changed to January a few weeks ago. Does this info not apply to me then?

Have you had email notification that your car is built? Does your order have a Vin number on the website? they are the two key elements for this ship. VIN number means about to go into build, shipping email from Polestar means it 'SHOULD' be on this boat.

Great work mate, my car got changed from October to September, and i have a VIN and all that, so i assume my car will be on that boat.

I have an expected delivery of 13th September, which wouldn't then work with your dates, but i kinda trust your dates over whats on the the hidden part of a website lol

No, VIN is on the actual website when you log in and click through to view the full details.My LRDM Performance/Plus is currently at December estimated, no VIN yet so not even scheduled for build.
Oh ok I'll look. An annoying thing is my husband gets all the emails even though I set up an account with Polestar in order to pay the deposit. He was then registered as the 1st driver for our Test drive and myself the 2nd driver. So I don't receive any emails or updates!

There are two earlier ships under the same carrier departing from Shanghai earlier. My Polestar research has found that they are shipped from Lianyungang, however the guy on the Tesla forum (with a LOT more knowledge) has in the past referenced some Tesla ships leaving with Polestars on board.

That I don't have any idea about, however if your car was to be delivered earlier they may be sharing ships!

Have a nosey on the website link above to see if the dates work. Tesla ships used to go to Zeebrugge from USA but when they started shipping from China the boats usually go straight into Southampton.

I've just looked and it's blank below the word vin. 😥

Yep, same here. As soon as you get a VIN allocated you know your car will be built in days. That's the next key event for you (and me!)

After that, its the shipping email from Polestar, and then you can start the detective work on boats (if you're inclined)

For info, the two Shanghai boats leaving are called 'Boheme' and 'Titus' due to arrive Southampton 30th August (Boheme) and 22nd August (Titus) so if UK customers are being told mid September those two boats would work.

I'll do some more digging, I think the first ship I mentioned is pretty much nailed on as a Polestar shipment based on my research, Shanghai boats are currently a wild guess and I expect the Shanghai ships will primarily be Tesla.

How do you get to the 'hidden' part of the website please? I'd be interested in taking a look.

My JSON info points towards Titus
customerEarliestPossibleHandoverDate: "2022-08-26". estimatedDeliveryDate: "2022-09-13"

Pretty sure Titus was mentioned a while back in the other thread with a clutch of Polestars earlier in the year ...not sure what the collective noun is for Polestars maybe a Galaxy or howabout a Geelaxy 🤓

Okey Dokey, (I can see me getting addicted to this!) I am now 98% sure the ship 'Carmen' is a polestar Europe boat.

Why? Well, its assigned a code of 'AE' and on another older thread on here that apparently signifies a Polestar Europe shipment. Its schedule also corresponds with the known PDI elements (car arrives Zeebrugge, crossload onto another ship and to BCA Logistics in Oxford for final prep, registration and delivery)

I need to do some work on where in the UK Polestars arrive (Southampton seems logical) and once it docks in Zeebrugge hazard a guess at which boat leaves Zeebrugge for UK.

I still can't find anything relating to Shanghai shipping, of course its possible (the factory is closer to Shanghai than Lianyungang)

I hope this is helping and it would be great if some of us who have estimated deliveries around early October let me know if they get a formal delivery update around 3rd September when 'Carmen' gets to Greece as that's what my research tells me, we then know 100% that its a Polestar boat and your car is onboard.

Great work. Even if mine's not on it!

Great post.

Just looking at the photos of the vessel, it's not as big as i thought it would be. Just looks like a big ferry to me.
