Handling unit means ordered material + packing material

Suppose if you are buying 10 pens it comes in a wrapper with a carton box

This is called Handling unit which means your ordered material pen of 10 pieces and the packing materials of wrapper and carton box

Handling unit is also called as Shipping unit

Handling unit is assigned to a unique sequential no from the predefined number range like 2000000045

This no will give information about what is packing material used in that HU and that packing material will give information about what is the ordered material inside
