Symptoms

In the building of a multistop shipment from 8 Order Releases with pick up from 2 locations and
drop off at 4 locations, the expectation is that the shipment should indicate a consolidated
pick from location PICK_A and locations PICK_B followed by a one drop of the orders at location
DROP_A, DROP_B, DROP_C, DROP_D instead of dropping at the drop off locations twice. However it is observed that the drop off is happening two times at the drop off locations instead of a consolidating and dropping once.

Scenario


01. Create 8 order releases (with Quanity --1 each) as follows:

OR 1 -->PICK_A to DROP_A
OR 2 -->PICK_A to DROP_B
OR 3 -->PICK_A to DROP_C
OR 4 -->PICK_A to DROP_D
OR 5--->PICK_B to DROP_A
OR 6 --->PICK_B to DROP_B
OR 7 --->PICK_B to DROP_C
OR 8 --->PICK_B to DROP_D

02. Selects all 8 OR and does a Build Multistop shipment

03. 1 Shipment created with 2 Pick Ups (from PICK_A and PICK_B respectively) and drop off stops
are DROP_A (1), DROP_B (1), DROP_C (1), DROP_D(2), DROP_A (1), DROP_B (1) , DROP_C (1)

04. Client expectation is that the shipment should indicate a consolidated pick from location
PICK_A and locations PICK_B followed by a one drop of the orders at location DROP_A, DROP_B,
DROP_C, DROP_D instead of dropping at the drop off locations twice.
