    Hi, I am afraid this question was overlooked because the tag "SAP Transportation Management" was not assigned to this question.

    A freight unit is basically a unit representing cargo that needs to be transported, such as products. A transportation unit is something that needs to be transported, contains cargo and uses a piece of equipment to carry that cargo, for example a container.

    So, a transportation unit can contain a freight unit if you want to handle the freight unit individually somewhere (e.g. when unloading a container at the port and carrying the pallet by itself) but in some cases can also be used without a freight unit in it if you don't need to handle the freight unit individually (e.g. in a full container load scenario).

    Hope this helps.
