Why should we track unit shipments?
A shipping unit is a physical unit or shipment that is not shipped in a package. This includes all types of goods, regardless of the unit of weight or the measurements used to calculate the freight, except for goods that are shipped in large quantities. It also includes the term “ordinary cargo unit” used in COGSA (in some cases, on its own or by agreement). So, higher/rising shipments are indicative of a growing business.
