    Hi,

    A handling unit is a physical unit that consists of the packaging materials (load carrier / packaging material) and the goods contained therein. A handling unit is always a combination of materials and packaging materials. All the information contained in the material items, such as batches and serial numbers, is always available by way of the handling units.

    Packaging materials are intended to enclose or hold together the materials that are to be packed. In other words, the material that is to be packed can be packed into or onto the packaging material. The packaging material can be a load carrier. The most important packaging materials include crates, boxes, containers, wire baskets, and pallets.

    Regards,

    Naveen

    Hi,

    Handling Unit is something which is used to either ship/transport the material, or simply can be a cargo container thru which goods will be shipped.

    Packaging material is the thing which is used to Pack the goods , to be shipped. The packaging Material is generally a box or something pertinent to packaging , which contains a set of goods. There can be either one or more than one Packaging Material in one single handling unit.

    Reward if helpful.

    Regards.
