Unit of Measure:
The different ways individual SKUs or groups of SKUs are tracked and processed (e.g., picked) in terms of handling unit. In most DCs, this can include pallets, cases, layers, inner packs, and eaches. Other units of measure can include: weight, length (e.g., for cables), tanks, Gaylord boxes, as well as others. There are differences in the capabilities to manage diverse units of measure across WMS vendors.
