Goal

You would like to plan shipments in advance  then  add equipment (container) to existing shipments including shipments that have already been tendered.


OTM lets you remove equipment from existing shipments, but it does not allow adding new equipment.


As a workaround when you need to add containers to a shipment, you withdraw the booking, then cancel the booking with the ocean carrier, losing the secure space confirmed.  You then need to plan the shipment again and create a new Buy Shipment and finally send out a new booking request again.

You want to be able to go to the “Buy Shipment” and “Ship Equipment” UI's to add new Equipment  into existing Shipments, without having to withdraw the accepted Buy Shipment, just as it currently allows removing them.
