OTM Customers using Shipment Fleet actions "Optimize Driver Assignments" and "Optimize Equipment Assignments" are getting incorrect behavior with respect to their expectation.

For the 1st Shipment, OTM is adding the NFR stop of YARD to bring the Driver and Power Unit from the YARD and then going to "PORT" and then to "CUSTOMER A".
