-- Problem Statement:
When Bulk Planning multiple orders where the source and destinations are in close proximity (have the same zipcode), an extra depot stop is being added to the route in between the 2 destinations and in addition addinga blank stop at the end. For example, in the case of 4 orders with the following setup 3 stops are expected, however, 5 are built:


-- Steps To Reproduce:
1. Select 4 orders which use 2 common locations containing the same zipcode. Each of the locations is used as Source on 2 orders and Dest on the other 2. Make sure one of the locations is configured as a Depot Stop.
2. Bulk plan these orders using the custom planning parameter set
3. Note that 5 stops are shown in the shipment result as opposed to the 3 expected..
