The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a Charter Voyage with two stowage modes and create a consol shipment for each stowage mode

(i.e, having a pre-transport leg, a vessel leg that is marked as Primary and a delivery leg)
3. Then select the Order Release and select the action, Create Buy Shipment - Create Buy Shipment
on Primary leg. This creates three Order Movements(OM).
4. Then select the OM related to the Vessel leg, and then select the action, Move to Consol
Shipment created for one of the stowage modes.
5. Then attempt to delete the shipment created for the other stowage mode, the error appears
