Use this component with the CacheManager object to load shipping data for the multiple shipments shipping architecture.
Although the ShippingManagerCache component implements two of the pipeline component interfaces (IPipelineComponent and IPipelineComponentAdmin), it is not a pipeline component, it does not appear in the Pipeline Editor, and it cannot be used or configured from the Editor.
You can use the ShippingManagerCache component with the CacheManager object to store shipping method information for the Splitter and ShippingMethodRouter pipeline components.
When run by the CacheManager object, the ShippingManagerCache component uses two pipeline dictionaries (Order and Context) to determine how to run and how to return information to the CacheManager object.
