So my dealer showed me his computer and gave me a print out that showed it was released. Next step was rail or truck.
It looks like Indiana uses Cassens for delivery. I went to their website and found a way to track VINS and dealership numbers.

So I’m obsessed. Found out my car was released on 6/14 and is waiting on a truck. After a little digging I found the trucking company my location uses for delivery. I can obsessively check my VIN for when it’s out for delivery! Also found an old story on Subaru logistics.

Here is even better news. After you get your new Ascent, Christmas is only another five months away! It doesn't get any better than that. Just know that peeking up the chimney won't make Santa arrive any sooner. Reminds me of another adage when it comes to backyard grilling: If you're lookin', it ain't cookin'.

Yeah, but if we peek up the chimney now, will it make our Ascent arrive sooner??

OP is saying that he found out that the dealership where he pre-ordered the car uses "Cassens" as the trucking/carrier, on the "Cassens" website you could look up the status of the car if you have the VIN + Dealer number, but that is if your dealer uses "Cassens" as the transport company.

Anyone know what delivery mode/service/company would be used for CO? I have a VIN and a dealer code, but that combo is not recognized when I punch it in the Cassens site. Though, that could also be because mine is not yet in transit...

Subaru uses United Road trucking in Utah. Unfortunately they only publish delivery receipts. Also, its like a 15-30 minute drive max from the rail yard to each dealer in the area. So it wouldn't give us much of a heads up.

Colorado would probably be by rail. That is a long drive for a car carrier that may only have four to six vehicles on it, also pretty expensive being nearly a three day round trip for the driver.

If you’re truly wanting to learn how to be a freight broker, then there is one company we can recommend. These guys are the original companies out there and have been working within trucking development and freight brokering for 15 years. Try looking at LFS at logisticalforwardingsolutions.com this company is a private management and consulting company that works and develops members into true logistical freight brokers. They have a brokerage that enables its members to work and grow within. You can also email their President, Michael Thomas, he’s a published logistical author, trucking company owner, freight brokerage owner, President logistical association and true logistics advocate at [email protected] he is the real deal everyone and he offers his consulting only to his private members within his network. With their company, if accepted you can learn how to build a true logistical freight movement company within a team. I’ve been with them for 7 years and they are the best…!

Found it, thanks!!

Doesn't look like Cassens is the shipper for the southeast. Any idea who the trucking company would be?
Sorry, No idea.
I'm still trying to figure out who is the trucking company for my dealer. I was told United but with doubt :tango_face_wink:
