Products in Acctivate can have a weight metric assigned to the stocking unit and packaging unit. When using Packaging Manager, Acctivate will calculate the weight of the cartons based on this metric and the number items in the carton. Packaging manager will also calculate the weight of the shipment based on the sum of the cartons. Acctivate also needs to be configured to display what unit of measure the weight is in, for example, Pounds or Kilograms.
