When two shipments are merged for the Ship Units the Loading Pattern is lost.

Expect the Loading Pattern to be kept.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:


1 - Log on to OTM.

2 - Create two Orders with the same origin and destination.

3 - Plan both orders separately creating two Shipments

4 - Shipments created were:

5 - Edit both Shipments, go to Equipment Tab > Shipment equipment and note the Loading Pattern ID is LENGTHWISE

6 - Select both Shipments and click Actions > Operational Planning > change Shipment Route > Merge Shipments.

7 - Clicked OK.

8 - In the Merge Shipments screen select one of the Shipment IDs from the Shipment ID drop down.

9 - Click Manual.

10 - The merged Shipment is created/used.

11 - Edit the shipment and drill down to the Shipment Equipment

12 - The result was:
One Ship Unit had LENGTHWISE
One Ship Unit had no Loading Pattern ID
