The tracker has updated and the transit date says 10. It also says awaiting shipping, anyone know what this transit date means? I hope not the 10 month.

Congrats on the update! Which plant, blend date and production date?

What would make sense is that it is the day of month the truck was released to transit and the 10th was yesterday. I haven’t heard of anyone getting this populated months in advance like the eta date does so I really don’t think it means October. Probably does not mean shipped yet but perhaps now officially waiting to be shipped?

My transit date was 09. The tracker says it was built on 07/01. It is now "waiting shipment" from KC at the "Wade lot", where ever that is. We have seen transit dates from 01 to 33 (!) so they don't really make any sense. The 9th has past with no updates to "shipped"

Going to Canada, you will most likely shipped by rail. Get a screenshot of your visibilty report from your dealer to get the rail car number and you should be able to track it's journey cross country by that.

Ok, I will go out on a limb here and trust my dealer, Transit Date is the approximate number of days from shipment to delivery. At least on my first build that was the case. It was shipped on 6/10 had a Transit Date of 14 and an ETA of 6/24 (14 day window). See if that comes close to your situation. What was your shipped date? What is ETA? Does the Transit Date come close to the difference?

This is correct, the average time it takes to get to you.

No ship date and no eta so it’s anyone’s guess what any of this means.

As I said before it is just an estimated shipping time. For me it says 16 days on the mach-e transit date as well as 16 days on the attached for tracker. It it doesn't matter the date the truck ships, it is saying it estimates 16 days from the ship date. The number is that number even if it ships on the 5th, 5th, or 25th of the month. The transit day will be the same. Think of it as a counter not a day of the month. My Mach-E was 40, there is no 40th in the Julean calendar.
