Who’s in charge of shipping

    Maybe Farley should start in the shipping department and fire a bunch. Trucks sitting for weeks on end after being built waiting for a transport is irresponsible. Apparently those in charge of shipping do not monitor shipping logistics once the truck is driven out the production door. I guess Ford thinks once it’s out the door it’s not their concern.

    Just a piss poor way to run a business that says theirs’re there for customers. I’m tired of asking when, It’s been 8 weeks now since built just sitting. I get a standard answer when I call “shipping delays” and the next weeks dates are given “unless a shipping delay”

    This has not been a positive experience with ford. Watching other forums mine is not an isolated case.



    I’m with you, Harvey. I special-ordered my F250 in February 2022. It was finished being built on 28 September 2022. First delivery lie was 18-28 October. Second delivery lie was 14-20 November. Third delivery period, we have yet to see if it is a lie, is 13-19 December. The truck has been sitting on ramp 1K at the Kentucky truck plant since 28 September. Two and a half months!!! One would think that a special order truck would have priority over trucks made to sit on dealer lots. But, NOOOOOOOO!

    If I was CEO of Ford, I would immediately fire everybody in the shipping end of the company and replace them with competent shipping-experienced people. Whenever I call Ford to ask, “when is my truck going to ship?” all I get is the old supply chain, supply chain, supply chain answer.

    I sure hope this third delivery period is correct! I NEED TO HAVE THIS TRUCK!


    I hope the previous posters have their trucks by this date! I read about the delivery delays and realize my situation is the same ! My F150 was ordered in August 22 and build date was November 22, it’s sitting on a lot in Michigan! (1-23). I don’t understand how a business runs like this. My dealer told me that he has only one F150 on his lot at this time (1-23). Maybe soon! ……………. And the delay continues!
