korea and japan have mega integrated industrial groups as the normMy research skills need improvement.
Did you know Toyota Group has its own ships? Just found that out.
-Toyofuji Shipping (TFS). Toyota has multiple ships (Trans Future 5,6,7, and New Century 2). Such boring names!
It can get confusing when you can name any ship whatever you want and have similar routes. For example, K-Line has Toyota Maru vessel and others.
It makes sense that Toyota would get into the vehicle shipping business.
More searching under TFS gives the following schedule.
This is what happens when Toyota removes my self-service tracking…I have too much inquisitiveness…cannot sit idly by…it doesn’t make a world of difference as the vehicle will get here when it gets here.
May have to give my Toyota retention manager a call to see if they can see any updated shipping details. They tell me there is a LC300 that I can test drive, but delivery is minimum 3yrs (so the dealership rumour goes), but I think it will be closer to 4-5yrs personally. Crazy to be thinking about a future vehicle that far out.
Chips from Taiwan -Everybody should be hoping that the situation there calms down.
Stuff from China is also impacted (input plastics and production pieces).
I am pleased that I am nearly at the end of the tunnel (Part 1). Part 2 is getting the time to do my own build. Nobody will build the vehicle to the same standard as oneself. I’ll probably take a week off work to do what I need to do to the vehicle, and then start planning a holiday up to QLD.
