Enforce a stop without transshipment

Hello everyone,

do you know a possibility to enforce an additional stop in a freight order without having loading/unloading activities or transshipment there?

The background of my question is the following scenario: We have a larger site with multiple loading points, but only one central check-in/out building. Freight orders shall contain the check-in/out building as a stop. This is because we want to model check-in and check-out as events.

The most straightforward approach that came to my mind was: Group all locations on the site in one zone, create intrazone lane and a lane from the zone to the check-in/out location. Only from that location there are lanes to all the destinations we might want to ship to. But this is only possible if I assign the check-out location as a transshipment location for the zone as well as for the destinations. In planning, this results in two freight orders being built, one going from zone locations to check-out location, the other going from there to the final destination. But this is not what I want to achieve. I just want an additional stop in a single freight order where (from planning point of view) nothing happens. Any ideas how to achieve this?
