Are you okay with the tagging being fixed where it hasn't been touched by
subsequent users? Right now it's rendering on the ITO truck layer as being
suitable for a truck (since that's how it's tagged)
If there's any documentation about what the values mean in the datasource it
would be helpful.
The import account hasn't agreed to the CTs. Is this an oversight, or are
there legal reasons preventing it from agreeing?
