MKC finally shipped!

Hello, my MKC is in transit!! They said I should receive it 10 business days or less.

Has anyone received theirs yet? How long did it take once shipped? They said it all depends on the driver and the route they take. You think they would have a better way to track this!

Did anyone get emails throughout their production? I did not. I was told I would, but I had to follow up mostly. Michelle from the Facebook team emailed me to say it was out of production.

They did send me Lincoln swag (hat, pen, mug, keychain) and Brazilian coffee and a Swell travel mug.

Where are you located? Does your window sticker say "rail" or "convoy" at the bottom under "method of transp"???

Yes, built in Louisville, KY...adjacent to the airport there, just south thereof. If yours is in transit, the dealer should have a tracking status that indicates the railcar number...usually 4 letters and 6 numbers. Once you get that you can track it via CSX's automated railcar tracking phone number...1-800-235-2352. Follow the prompts. After it is unloaded in NJ, a transporter will carry it to your dealer.

FYI...I'm in the Dallas area and it takes the train 8 days to get here, after it gets going. Then 24 hours to unload, then 24-48 hours to get it transported to the dealer 20 miles from the railhead.

I assume convoy means truck?

Have either of you received the rail car number your MKC is transiting on and if so, what type of information do you get from CSX?

Good there's now a better estimate of time. . I got majorly ticked & close to canceling being told it would be there "any day now" & it wasn't for 2wks even after "on the rails". Had no idea how long transit took & neither did the dealership. Such a relief when it, finally, arrived &, totally, worth it!
