@ACC2420 it seems your dealer should be making the necessary adjustments to your order to get a better chance at scheduling. Every dealer has known for months that fleet orders are on the back burner. In fact I’m pretty sure they were aware of it when you re-ordered in July. Your dealer should have changed the order to retail or at least talked to you about options they have to improve your chances at getting scheduled.

 

The fleet scheduling process hasn't changed and the lead times for OTD (Order to Delivery) are much longer for fleet orders as has always been the case. The customer should know what the Fleet Priority Code is and what the requested production week is. It's not simply a matter of Ford putting fleet orders on the "back burner" or a Dealer "making necessary adjustments" or changing the order to a retail order type. Fleet ordering, scheduling, pricing, incentives, invoicing and registration requirements are all different from that for retail customer orders. Ford releases an updated FDNB (Fleet Distribution News Bulletin) every Friday that includes updated Fleet scheduling information and averages about 15 pages of content. There are ways to make the scheduling system work, with limitations, but I'm not about to share a course on fleet scheduling and/or troubleshooting.

I appreciate the information. From my own research I did find that out and I did make them put in a retail order for me. Just don't know what else to do after I've been waiting for 10 months since I started this whole process.

Happy camper today! Picked up the second of two trucks ordered from a local dealer. Crisa @Oracle Ford in AZ was excellent to deal with. They were very responsive and straight to the point on all matters.

 

Both F350, 6.7, 3.55, LB, CC, 4X4s. One was a Lariat value package, 11,400 GVWR and the other was a Lariat, ultimate package, loaded up a bit and a 12,400 GVWR.

 

Truck #1 Ordered 4/9/21 and delivered 9/1/21

Truck #2 Ordered 6/29/21 and delivered 9/14/21

 

Thanks to this forum, I was able to learn about and get X-pricing on both trucks. Super excited and very happy with the trucks and Ford! I am a die hard Ford guy when it comes to my diesel trucks. These are number 8 and 9 in the long Ford truck journey.

 

One more thing...I love the new screen and dash setup!

Did you get PCOs after you ordered?

Order another truck from a different dealer, I did first order was f350 platinum cc 7.3 order with AS but removed it 12 weeks ago. Ordered was moved to a 02 priority code. Still up to this past Tuesday when I canceled it unscheduled clean order truck 2 same truck different dealer small family owned  ordered 8/30 dealer contacted reg. Rep and got him to switch to a 01 priority truck was scheduled 9/09 with a build week of 9/27 so how does this happen makes no sense my opinion which Ice Capades has said numerous times it’s a dealer issue not knowing how to work the system not a Ford motor company problem. But I would put another order in and take the first one they don’t care they will mark the other up $10,000 over msrp !!!!

From the time you get a build week notification/date, how long till the window sticker is available. Also where will the window sticker be to view? Will that show up in the same location on the Ford tracking site?

Usually get the window sticker 5-7 days before your build day. I got my window sticker 9/9 and truck has production day of 9/16. Window sticker will be on either the ford tracker site or the Mach-e tracker

Is your truck going to Tuscaloosa?  I’ve got one on order from them and I’m curious of transit time from factory to dealership.

New to the Forum. Ordered a 250 Platinum 4x4 Crew many options, but not AS. Ordered 8/3. Got a vin and build week for this week. Email last Thursday; moved build until next week. Hopefully!  Enjoying the pictures of delivered trucks!

Finally Today I got my vin# ..Happy day for me. Scheduled for build Oct 18th

Same week for me as well!! Fingers crossed that they improve the date. Looks like some on this page have had that happen. I’ve had a truck my whole life and this is the 1st time ever that I don’t and I knew it would suck but not this bad…… I never knew how much I really relied on my truck

That's strange since mine has been in production for 6 days. Wondering if it's just not getting updated?

Because In Production doesn’t mean it’s actually on the assembly line.  There are also delays waiting for some things that get added offsite.

FWIW, I ordered my F-350 from Long Lewis in Hoover May 17. Built on 9/1, shipped on 9/4, arrived in Birmingham rail yard on 9/7. From there, it sat until 9/14, and delivered to Long Lewis that morning, picked up that afternoon.

From what I understand there will be none with AS until further notice. Check each weeks scheduling for any change. Good luck.

That gives me a good idea. Thank you very much!!

Good luck. I ordered a F450 Platinum March 31, and probably like you, I've had a bunch of build dates. After one that said Oct 25 a month ago, I had my dealer cancel AS. Unfortunately, the system never reflected the cancellation, so they got the rep involved and cancelled in last Thursday. I'm hoping it gets schedule this week. I think they'll be scheduling for the build week of October 18.

Thanks to this forum, I was able to learn about and get X-pricing on both trucks. Too top that off I ended up with two PCO's of $2,500 off of each truck as well. Between the X-Plan, PCO and no-city sales tax, I saved between $7,500 and $8,500 per truck. Almost can't believe the prices I got these for in today's market. Super excited and very happy with the trucks and Ford! I am a die hard Ford guy when it comes to my diesel trucks. These are number 8 and 9 in the long Ford truck journey.

Where did you get your PCO's from

"Your order is being manufactured at one of our factories. This can take a few days."  

So a few days could actually mean 24 hours to a couple of weeks?
