I went into the info bit for expected arrivals but the Tulane has not shown up yet on the list, so I went into port information, it said arrival either 17:00/18:00 hrs 27th April then it said etd I expect that is expected time departure 28th April 18:00 hrs Antwerp.
I cannot figure out why it is not showing the expected arrivals in the port section for Portbury?

Hi Wilma, the Bristol ports website shows that the Tulane is expected at 1700hrs tomorrow

I seen that but when you go into the ports section on the maritime traffic thingy and you put in Portbury and go to expected arrivals it does not show the Tulane, just a bit paranoid I think I amEdited by: wilma08

Ah right, now I've got you



Don't search the Maritime "ports" field as it is worse than useless. Thinking back to when we first determined which ship was carrying your car, it was established by working backwards from the date of arrival in Bristol.


When we then searched for the Tulane on the Maritime website, we found her in the South China Sea, having just left Incheon but when we searched the "ports" part of the site, there was no record of her ever arriving let alone departing but the Tulane's own page clearly showed that the last port was Incheon. There was/is even a photograph of the ship moored at Incheon on 16/03/13.


If the port arrivals/departures search facility on the Maritime website was up to date and accurate, it would make establishing which ship is carrying our Antara much more certain.


As I type, the Tulane is in the Bristol channel heading for your port and will be arriving later on this afternoon

Well, the Tulane should have docked by now and in the next few hours your Antara should be on "terra firma".



You never know, maybe British efficiency will come to the fore and you will get your car quicker than expected. No more early rises for you

Why has the wagon to mwait a further 4 days?, it is not adapted untill it is at the dealers, so should be treated as a normal car.

Don't know if you noticed but there are two additional photographs of the Tulane which have been added to the ship's portfolio on the "Marine Traffic" website.


Both were taken and uploaded yesterday, one was taken at Portishead Point and the other was taken at Redcliff Bay.

I think they do that once they know it has arrived in dock and off the boat as it is treat just like anyotherdelivery as you are leasing it from the company through Motability, We bought ourChevrolet Captiva last year and had to wait six weeks for it to come from Korea not six months because we picked Black and it was on the production line whenrecorded, once it came we collected it from Pentigon Cars within a coule of days arrival from Korea, so do not see anydifferencedo you

Strangely there are two vehicle carriers due to dock at Bristol within three days of each other, both of which have docked at Incheon, South Korea and then departed with a cargo of cars.

The carriers in question are the "Grand Pioneer" which is due to dock in the UK on 29/05/13 and is currently approaching the "blackout" area to the north of Malaysia and the other ship is the "Ariana" which is due to dock on 01/06/13 but is currently sailing around the Busan area of South Korea.


Just thought that I would mention these two ships for anyone expecting to take delivery of their Antara around 10/06/13 and for any other member who wants to track some more cars on their journey to the UK

I've been tracking the Tongala and Grand Pioneer for a couple of days now (I want it to be on the Tongala which is due on Sun 18th May as my delivery date is "late may" at the dealers) but I've simply been entering the ship name into google and tracking it there. Is there a better way to track the ship?

Another question - where on the map is the "Blackout" area?
