so my product has been shipped, i paid the manufacturer for the shipping...

received the bill of lading.

when i track the vessel it shows that it will be reaching vancouver on dec 11, 2017

the B/L shows montreal as the port of discharge and toronto as the place of delivery.

does anybody have an idea as to the timing? if the vessel arrives dec 11 - when it the earliest i could possibly have everything?
It depends a lot if it is held for a secondary, delays in picking up by the trucking company, etc. There are a lot of factors involved.

I don't understand why port of discharge is Montreal yet vessel is landing at Vancouver. Should they not be the same? In any event, that suggests the shipment is being trucked/trained to Montreal in bond before it is processed.
