How does the Connection Management as part of the Handling Unit System work?

Übersicht

metasfresh enables you to keep track of a product not only as in stocked amounts but it is also possible to map in which form the article is.

As an example a product can be represented as e.g. 10 pieces in a box where as there are 20 boxes on one pallette.

To map a product (customer unit = CU) with its packaging (Transport Unit = TU) and its aids used in loading is called Handling Unit System. Therefore a CU in a TU in an LU is a Handling Unit.
