How can i prevent or control 0 value shipment cost items?

We are configuring a change to our shipment costing process where we want to post to several different accounts from the same shipment/shipment cost document. This is due to a need to split by by road/rail/sea freight.

We have setup several item categories with a different valuation class so that we can determine different accounts. Attachment shows these. These are all set to automatically propose.

The problem we have found is that some of these items will frequently have no conditions as they only apply in some circumstances e.g. when the shipment uses Sea or Rail freight. However the item categories we exist in the cost document with 0 value and therefore must be deleted to set the status of the cost document to completed (otherwise it still appears in progress with status B). If we set the item categories to manual then they need to be manually added in when they do apply (which doesnt help).

Is there any way to populate the item category only when an actual condition applies? Or possibly to remove/ignore 0 value item categories. It causes an error when 0 value is transferred to finance.item-category.png

    Even though Shipment Cost is 0, it will have the status has Calculated but it won't allow to transfer since it's 0. Are you able to transfer the SCD even though the value is 0? could you please confirm.
