Hello everyone. I have a question or two about new cars being delivered to dealerships from the Brampton plant. I’ve just ordered my first car ever. I’ve bought new cars, but only ones off the lot. I’ve heard talk about cars being transported in a truck and about being delivered by railway. Maybe they are done in a combination of the two. Has anyone ever ordered a new car in the mid to lower east coast? North Carolina specifically. My order was placed on December 1 for my R/T Scat and on the 18th it was already in Buffalo. How would it travel to North Carolina? Of course they are shipping the car to me by transport truck here in Kentucky after it arrives and we complete paperwork, but I’m just curious how it traveled.

Rail to the nearest hub, then trucked the rest of the way.

You can also tell your dealer to save every pice of paper in the car and in it you will likely find the shipping order which will have the routing and carriers on it to document the way it got to your dealer but the above sounds right.

Thanks. That's what I figured.

Make sure your dealer understands well ahead of time how you want the car "prepped" Dealers routinely remove and toss everything associated with the packaging of a shipped vehicle. They do it in a production-line fashion and yours could easily get accidentally "cleaned-up" more than you want, from a historical aspect anyway.
