[Koha] Status "in transit" after checking in

Our library is financed by two organisations. Thus we have one Koha
18.11 instance with two separate branches, but only one circulation 
counter where we are checking in the items.

Say we are logged in at the counter with branch A and checking in an 
item belonging to branch B - this will result in the following status 
message for the item: "In transit from branch A to branch B since 
26/01/2020". To set this status to "Available" we need to log in as 
branch B and to check in the item once more.

We would better like if the status could just go to "Available" since in 
fact there is no transport necessary.

After some fruitless reading of the manual I came up with the idea to 
just delete the content of table "branchtransfers" every minute via cronjob:

DELETE FROM branchtransfers;

The status is then "Available", as desired.

Is this possible/advisable, or do you know a better way?
