Can anyone offer advice on how to track car carrier arrivals?

I'm particularly interested in ships carrying Tesla cars from the US, but an overview would be great if anyone cares to offer one. :-)

Sure. But which ship? I was hoping someone who knows something about car carriers might be helpful.

What port?

 

I think they all have shipping schedules on line.

 

Lyttelton's schedule includes cargo description (ie "Cars") which would make it a bit easier to track down by identifying likely vessel names and looking at where they'd come from via one of those ship tracking sites.  They usually list the last port, which can be pretty misleading, vessels from North America didn't come direct to NZ.  Auckland's schedule doesn't have cargo but states which wharf the vessel is berthing at - so if you knew which wharf cars are unloaded at, that might be a head start.  Then I guess there's another potential gotcha, I doubt there are ships full of thousands of new and used American cars heading to NZ, maybe some go from North America to Asia, dropping off US and Mexican/Canadian made cars in Japan etc, loading up with new and used cars from Japan, and new utes from Thailand, then down here via Aus ports.  Then again maybe if it's a few dozen cars at a time, they stick them in 20' containers and ship them as general containerised cargo.  Years ago when I was importing stuff there was a surplus of reefer containers in the US because they import far more refrigerated cargo than they export , if your stuff was acceptable cargo for shipping in one of those containers, shipping rates were attractive (but took ages to get to NZ - IIRC 12 weeks with multiple port stops and thus plenty of scope for delays).
