Forget UPS and FedEX, they’ve got nothing on this:
Our car has officially been ‘sold’ from Plant Oxford and is now in Southampton awaiting loading onto the MV Torrens which is a massive floating parking lot for cars and vehicles, in this case, travelling from Germany, Belgium and the UK to Canada and the United States.
Checking the weather in Southampton, the car is definitely going to be getting used to some cooler weather. We’re having similar weather in Toronto and Halifax. We’ll see what the next week brings.
Using Marinetraffic.com, we’ll be able to track the MV Torrens as it crosses the Atlantic.
The MV Torrens is a British-registered ship built in 2004. 200m length overall, beam of 32m, and has a gross tonnage of 61,321 tons
