Packages vs. Handling Units
Packages are identified as the boxes, bags, or other packaging material into which you place items. This packaging is then placed on larger storage units, which are loaded onto trucks. The larger storage units are called Handling Units, the most common forms being pallets, skids, and slips. The default Package and default Handling Unit are shown at the top of the Packaging grid.
