I have only noticed them being slow the last two weeks. Is there a problem? It has never taken all my ships so long to make it to port.
Hi Joyinlife,
I moved your post to the Help & Support thread about cargo ships so I could answer you.. The only way to move your ships along fast is with the Overhead cranes. Having those allows you to self load a certain number of times for each ship type.
Other than that it depends on your neighbors loading them in a timely manner. The only problem would be them not loading the ships. There isn't anything the game can do to move them faster.

Hi Ritagermana,
I moved your post to the Help & Support section thread about the cargo ships. Please do not post questions or problems in the Suggestion section as that is only for making suggests to change or add new to the game.
Yes the ships will work in storage, as once you have bought them they stay active.

Hi, I have my ships turned off as I am not on enough to move others ships in good time. A couple of months ago I switched them on because of all the 'passes' that required me to move ships, however this became tedious so I switched them off again around 4 weeks ago. I have one persons ships that still keeps turning up, I have checked and it is definately turned off, I ignore the ships when they are there, but still they come in regularly, how can I sort this please?

Hi Barbaraelwart,
Even though you turn your port off and do not want to do them if those players have you in their log book they will still show up. You can either talk to them to get them to remove you from their list or ignore those ships and they will eventually realize you aren't doing them.

Thanks for your response. I have found the buddy and messaged to ask her to take me off her list. Hope this works

Hi Poof,
All that list tells you is all of those neighbors & buddies that have their port enabled. It doesn't tell you who are actively working ships.

I have a question.
On the cargo ships and calculating how many coins are earned when loading others' ships.

The million coins are earned only if I am the first port, load 10 containers, within the first hour, correct?
How many coins are earned if I'm the second port, load 10 containers, within the first hour?
How many coins does it decrease for the third port, fourth port and etc?

I'm just curious. Sometimes I load someone's ship with 10 containers within the first hour but only receive 800,000 coins.

Thanks for your time.

Hi Karlene,
The information about the rewards for loading ships is in the Game Guide chapter 32 about the ships in the following post link:
