You have the following scenario:

  • Planning Profile has Freight Order Building Rule settings set to "Create a new Freight Order when resource is empty"
  • In your planning run, you have a Freight Unit that goes, for example from A to B 
  • You expect that if there is an empty run, a Fregiht Order with a stage A to B will be created, along with another Freight Order with just the empty run stage from B to A
  • The result is that Optimizer plans the empty run stage in the same Freight Order
