Logistical unit

A logistical unit is the grouping of a previously defined quantity of goods into a new unit (unitization).

The logistics unit remains in place throughout the entire supply chain, thus simplifying the logistics process. By stacking individual units and unifying them without counting or weighing, material flow costs are reduced and the entire process is more efficient.

The term "Efficient Unit Loads" is used when the units of area and volume make the best possible use of each other. The aim is to align packaging, storage, ordering, loading and transport units so that the same transport options can be used everywhere.
