12:40 PM — First shipment has taken place! This morning, EVERY pre-order and Kickstarter reward for the SAFE Wallet 6 Plus was dispatched from our warehouse!!! I was CC'd on a massive email with a series of order numbers and corresponding tracking numbers. This data will be emailed to your email address on file this afternoon! We're so pumped to be shipping the SAFE Wallet 6 Plus!!! -Alex (BulletTrain)

4:21 PM — I was just CC'd on an email from our warehouse account manager. The email confirmed shipment for all "backorders" (that's their term for pre-orders etc.) to ship tomorrow!!! I wanted to share this great news with everyone, that the SAFE Wallet 6 Plus will be dispatching from our warehouse tomorrow :-) Thanks everyone!
(earlier today) 1:00 PM — We have received confirmation that the merchandise has been received, and is being unpacked! It doesn't look like shipment will commence today, unfortunately, BUT everything is being broken down now and prepared for dispatch to start tomorrow! We're almost there, everyone!

The first production was supposed to reach the warehouse today! Our cargo was on the truck, en route to the destination, but the truck was delayed in L.A. area afternoon traffic and ultimately did not arrive at our warehouse before the Receiving Department was closed for the day. We're VERY surprised to have one more day of unexpected delay fall into place, but we are still 100% stoked to deliver the best wallet case your iPhone 6 Plus could ever ask for!!! Here are our latest projections with today's events taken into account.
Tuesday, 9/29/15 — First Production checked into warehouse inventory. POSSIBLE some shipments will dispatch.
Wednesday, 9/30/15 — First Production shipment processing and dispatch. All pre-orders shipped!
Friday, 10/2/15 — U.S. Recipients begin receiving their SAFE Wallet 6 Plus!!!
That should be it! We're really excited to get this case into your hands!!! Thanks for hanging in there, everyone!

10:00 AM — We received confirmation that, since Customs clearance wasn't posted earlier in the day on Thursday, it was not scheduled in Friday's delivery routes. Good news though, a delivery appointment with our warehouse has been set on Monday! Dispatch to customers should commence by Tuesday :-) We wish inventory were delivered sooner, but we are excited nonetheless to have the First Production shipping out to customers this coming week!

9:00 AM — U.S. Customs is clear! This morning, we received confirmation that IN FACT, our pallet cleared U.S. Customs yesterday (9/24/15) at 4:15 PM!!! THIS IS VERY GOOD NEWS! If everything goes as planned, the product will arrive at our warehouse today, and be checked into inventory for dispatch on Monday 9/28/15! I'm so pumped up to see everyone get their SAFE Wallets!!!! ***UPDATE***
10:38 AM — I just received confirmation that local parties are now communicating to schedule the delivery to our warehouse! This is a big day, everyone! More to come soon!

5:00 PM — We expected today to be the day we received confirmation of dispatch from LAX, but our freight handlers are STILL waiting on the final sign-off from U.S. Customs to release the cargo. Our freight rep believes this should be cleared up as early as tomorrow morning (Friday), or as late as Monday. We wish we knew more, but will report tomorrow as soon as possible!! -Alex (BulletTrain)

9:00 AM — We haven't gotten a decisive update to our delivery date from U.S. Customs, and the delivery date to our warehouse is still stated as 9/23 - 9/25 by our freight handlers :-) We were notified that one piece of documentation needs to be updated. The necessary updates have been made to these documents, and they've been re-submitted. We are expecting a solid update to clearly indicate when the cargo is leaving LAX by truck, and will share it as soon as possible! ***UPDATE*** 10:17 AM — We've received some critical confirmations in the past hour!!!!!
Our freight handlers have reported the First Production is now in a "Checked-In" status, which is a precursory status to *official* clearance by Customs. Delivery to our warehouse by truck could commence as early as today!!! We will know more early this afternoon.
I had a conference call with our warehouse manager, and they are 100% prepared for our incoming cargo! This means we should see no delays between processing and shipment once the inventory is received!!! All shipment data has been confirmed on hand with our warehouse as well (Kickstarter backers, then BulletTrain.com customers).
Basically, it's starting to look more and more certain the First Production will be shipping from our warehouse very soon!!!

10:49 AM — Additional documentation has been added to our case with U.S. Customs! I am working on getting a hold of the contained information, and I should know more before the end of the day! Our official "estimate" according to freight handling is 9/23/15 for delivery to the warehouse, but the information today should either confirm that date, or at the very least provide further clarity!

11:17 AM — U.S. Customs has opened our case! More to come soon as it develops. ***UPDATE*** 5:08 PM — We've received confirmation via tracking that our First Production cargo has been inspected by U.S. Customs, and that the file has "remarks" for review. This is a good sign, although I am yet unclear if there is further inspection, or if this means the cargo will be offloading as early as tomorrow... but a good sign nonetheless!!! I have a call in with our freight handling agent for an update, and plan to share as much as I can by tomorrow. Thanks for hanging in there with us, everyone! If you have any questions, please contact us via email or post it in the comments :-) -Alex (BulletTrain)

6:22 PM — We just received confirmation from our freight handler that the first production has been assigned to a case for U.S. Customs, and is on schedule for inspection to commence tomorrow morning!!! So far, things are looking good for delivery in the next week! Based on the lead-time in U.S. Customs right now and the pre-freight inspections by our freight handler, we have reason to believe the Customs inspection could take as little as 2 days!!! Here is a best-case scenario from today's perspective:
9/21/15 - Processing in US Customs
9/22/15 - Clearance w/ US Customs
9/23/15 - Delivery to our warehouse in Southern California, unpacking into inventory
9/24/15 - Dispatch to Customers!!!
And here is a little more cushion on the same timeline of events:
9/21/15 - Processing in US Customs
9/24/15 - Clearance w/ US Customs
9/25/15 - Delivery to our warehouse in Southern California, unpacking into inventory
9/28/15 - Dispatch to Customers!!!
It's going to be pretty close whether the shipments will dispatch from our warehouse this week or early next week, but we will stay on top of it any keep everyone up to date!!! Thanks for your support! -Alex (BulletTrain)

This morning, our First Production was assigned to a case for U.S. Customs compliance checks. Our freight handler has let us know that U.S. Customs is currently backed up until Monday due to the beginning of a busier time of year in terms of cargo conveyance and clearance. This means we might not have too much to share tomorrow (9/18/15), but we'll be checking in with our handlers in the morning nonetheless to share whatever we can :-) Thanks everyone!

The First Production has been confirmed as received in a holding warehouse at LAX! For clarity, this is NOT the warehouse shipment will take place from, but a warehouse for holding cargo for inspection at Los Angeles International Airport :-) There will be a number of steps taking place behind the scenes for the next few days. We'll be doing our best to keep updates coming every day! In the meantime, here is a photo of our First Production shipment in holding at LAX. It's a mighty fine pallet!
I don't know that I've ever been so stoked to see a pallet! More soon! Thanks everyone!

We received confirmation over the weekend that the First Production was in transit, and are awaiting confirmation that the freight has arrived at Los Angeles International Airport. We are hoping to receive confirmation a little later today!
