Symptoms

OTM is able to re-tender shipments to a carrier more than its capacity limit.

- You have a fake carrier X where you assign the shipments (four shipments for example) to as a placeholder
- You tender the shipments. The tenders timeout
- OTM will automatically assigns the shipments to next feasible carrier which lets say Y
- You have a configured Capacity Limit for carrier Y (daily limit of three shipments for example)
- As a result of the tenders timeout on carrier X, OTM is able to re-tender more than three shipments for carrier Y. (That should not happen)

Example:
-----------
Orders:

OR_RETENDER1
OR_RETENDER2

Carriers:
DUMMYCARRIER
REALCARRIER
REALCARRIER-C

Rate Offerings:
RO_DUMMYCARRIER
RO_REALCARRIER (check the recalculate_cost box)
RO_REALCARRIER-C

Rate Records:
RR_REALCARRIER cost: 1 USD per shipment
RR_REALCARRIER-C cost: 100 USD per shipment
RR_DUMMYCARRIER cost: 0.1 USD per shipment

Shipments:
02436 (DUMMYCARRIER)
02437 (DUMMYCARRIER)

DummyCarrier
RealCarrier > only 1 shipments per day

Capacity Group: CG_REALCARRIER

Capacity Limit: CL_REALCARRIER (Daily capcity 1)


01. Tender the two shipments that are currently assigned to DUMMYCARRIER

02436 (DUMMYCARRIER) SECURE RESOURCES_TENDERED
02437 (DUMMYCARRIER) SECURE RESOURCES_TENDERED

02. Decline tender on both shipments

02436 (REALCARRIER) SECURE RESOURCES_TENDERED
