Errors in equipment initials and numbers can occur in TMS, most often when cars are interchanged online manually with the incorrect initial and number. When you correct a mistake, you can specify whether to reset a car’s ID back to the point at which the car was interchanged or whether to change only the current waybill. It will not impact prior history for that car.
