Is there a way to track a new car in transit at sea?

Hi guys, I've been told that my new car is in transit. Is there anyway of seeing where it is at sea?

Hi Simon,

It depends where it's coming from. If it's coming from the UK or Europe, then it'll probably come by train to a major port and then by car transporter ship to either Dublin, Cork or Rosslare. From Europe it wouldn't be at sea long enough to be of any interest. 

If it's coming from Japan or the Far East then it might be worth trying to find the name of the shipping vessel and then you can track it's movements from this website:
