Default Truck built, no railcars for transport?

From the status below, my R/T was built on 3/22 but is waiting for a railcar since then. Does anybody else have this problem on an order, or am I just lucky?

Jeep, GM & Phord are also experiencing delayed shipments for what has been termed a "railcar shortage" out of several plants.

I can't find a root cause for the shortage in any of the articles I have seen. Interestingly enough, no press releases seem to have been issued by the railroads.

The problem is that GM & Crysler have parted company with Allied Sysyems,the main carrier for these guy's. Vehicles are just building up at the plants in extra parking lot's because no one is big enough to move so much product.

^^^^ Interesting ^^^^ Allied Automotive Group offers

1. vehicle tracking by VIN for dealers, manufacturers and rental car companies;

2. Dealer exchange - point to point delivery and vehicle locating;

3. Haul Away services from port, plant or rail point of delivery. From the plant, they haul to rail points. From port and rail points they haul to dealer destinations.

4. Yard (Inventory) Management

5. Rail loading & unloading.

While there may not be a contract for these ancillary services, main transport is still by rail and we are being told it's a rail car shortage, not a point to point - loading - off loading issue.

I just feel for the folks that have been waiting for their vehicles and are now being told it will be a bit longer before they get them.

Still looking for a root cause, IMHO.

Yes Michael, at the moment anyway. Dont know how much longer we can last. There are about 4000 delivery trucks that have lost about 3/4 of there work load.

I'm in the same boat...DCX says my truck was released from the plant 03/31/11 and is waiting rail transport. I was told the disaster in Japan has caused the rail issue though I still cannot figure out how.

Thank you Sir !!! I'm sure it will all work out in the long run. It's just a shame the rest of us have to suffer in the short term. Especially when your waiting for your new baby to arrive......
