Here is a list I have made from the huge Shipping logistics thread of what the secret codes you can get from the portal and what they mean if you are tech enough to use the developer tools in your browser. US website only. Your dealer probably has a way to see these codes, and that is where us forum dwellers got these descriptions. Directions in this thread:
My turn to give back to the community. Disclaimer: this works for me. I don't know how to do this in Windows, or Linux. It's not available on an iPhone or iPad. This might be against forum policy. This could wind up not working if VWOA doesn't like it and hides it somehow. I didn't figure this...
Here's how to find it in Firefox - should be the same on any platform.
Menu -> Web Developer (or More Tools) -> Web Developer Tools
Click the Network tab
Log into the Portal or refresh if you're already logged in
Click the little Search magnifying glass to the right of the Filter box
In the "Find in resources box" (not the Filter box) search for GetReservations
After a few seconds you should get a couple hits, click on one of them
On the far right change the tab to Response
Finally look in the JSON data below, there should be "vin:" along with some other stuff.
and then search for orderStatusCode, then wait a few seconds and expand by clicking on the api.vw.com responses (note VIN is not assigned until 20-1, and its not included in the codes any longer, you have to ask your dealer for the VIN)
you don't have to search for GetReservations unless you want some other data besides orderStatusCode
03 Locked (wheel step 3)
05 Locked next step order created
10 Locked next step request production, order confirmed
10-2 Locked next step factory approved
15-1 Vehicle Scheduled For Production (call your dealer now they usually have better dates than the portal.)
15-2 Vehicle in production
20-1 Production complete, VIN assigned, in transit from factory
20-2 Left the port (wheel step 4, at this point some dealers can tell you a ship number for those really obsessed with this.)
30-1 Arrived in port but not unloaded yet. (2023 - Vehicle at US Port, factory is a free trade zone)
30-2 Unloaded from ship, not cleared customs yet (wheel step 5, 2023 :US Port Allocated ).
30-3 Cleared customs, Released to Carrier, waiting to load on transporter
35-1 On Rail to Dealer
35-2 On Truck to Dealer
35-3 Vehicle At Railhead
40 in a holding parking lot waiting for a truck
50 and higher- Arriving at dealer (wheel step 6-7, yet often dealer calls and its in before wheel updates)
Post in this thread if you get any others, they seem to keep adding and changing a few of them.
Edit: now there is a simpler way to see these codes using a chrome extension developed by a member here:
