Symptoms

-- Problem Statement:
On 5.5.05. Two orders exist that can be planned onto the same shipment using a 40ft container. If each order is planned separately onto two 20foot GP containers, when attempting to merge the two shipments using Optimise they cannot be merged. However if the Merge is redone and the Equipment Group of 40ft GP container is selected the two shipments are merged.

I the logs it seems that another 40ft Equipment is found but this has no rates and the merge fails.


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------------------
Expect to not have to specify the larger Equipment Group and for Optimise to select the correct Equipment during the merge and successfully merge the two shipments into one.

-- Steps To Reproduce:

1 - Logged on to OTM

2 - Navigate to: Order Management > Order Release > Order Release.

3 - Searched for the first Order to be planned.

4 - Copy this Order and create Order_1

5 - Plann order_1

6 - The order will be planned onto a Shipment, for example 1234

7 - Search for the second Order to be planned.

8 - Copy this Order and create order_2

9 - Plan order_2 withT

10 - The order will be planned onto a Shipment, for example 1235

11 - Navigate to: Transportation Planning and Execution > Shipment Management > Buy Shipments.

12 - Search for Shipment 1234 and 1235

13 - Select both Shipments and click on Actions > Change Shipment Route > Merge Shipment.

14 - Select the Parameter Set to be used to plan the orders.

15 - In the next screen tick 'Consolidate' and 'Optimise'.

16 - The two shipments are not merged.

This has replicated the issue.

Now to prove the orders can be planned togehter:

17 - Copy the Orders and create order_3 and order_4.

18 - Bulk Plann the two orders.

19 - The two orders were planned onto one shipment.
