Symptoms

-- Problem Statement:
On 5.5.04:

There are two Orders:
Order 1 = From location 1 to Destination location 5.
Order 2 = From location 2 to Destination location 6.

The Itinerary is set with 3 legs.
Leg 1 = From a region containing locations 1 and 2, to a destination of Location 3.
Leg 2 = From location 3 to location 4.
Leg 3 = From location 4 to a region containing locations 5 and 6.

When the two orders are planned 6 shipments are created:
2 LTL shipments from location 1 and 2 both into location 3.
2 TL shipments from location 3 to location 4 (this is incorrect.
2 LTL shipments coming from location 4 to locations 5 and 6.





EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

When the two orders are planned 5 shipments are expected:
2 LTL shipments from location 1 and 2 both into location 3.
1 TL shipment from location 3 to location 4.
2 LTL shipments coming from location 4 to locations 5 and 6.

The configuration is set so that one TL shipment can carry the orders between location 3 and 4 so only one TL shipment was created.

1. Create locations 1 through 6.
2. Create an itinerary with 3 legs:
Leg 1 = From a region containing locations 1 and 2, to a destination of Location 3.

3. Create two orders:
