VBS - Deactivating Company with Listed Slots prevents Booking for the Zone
Affected Terminals = ALL Terminals
There was an issue in VBS where if a Carrier had previously Booked then Listed a slot in VBS, then the Carrier got Deactivated in VBS. This then caused an error where the Zone the said Carrier had used was blocking other Carriers from booking slots in this zone. This bug has now been fixed.
Carriers will no longer be blocked from booking in a zone where a previous Carrier had booked, listed and then become Deactivated.
