SAP LES - HUM         

SAP Handling Unit Management (HUM) is used for tracking the handling units used across in- and outbound flows.  Typical handling units are packaging materials like inner packs and cartons, pallets, boxes and trolleys.

In the SAP system, the handling unit (HU) expands on the shipping unit. Handling units can be nested and you can also create new handling units from several handling units as often as you like. At the material item level, HUs contain the complete material identification, the quantity, and, in the case of serial numbers, the respective object list. Handling units have unique, scannable identification numbers that can be developed according to standards such as EAN 128 or SSCC.

Handling units contain all inventory management information of the materials they contain and are maintained in SAP Inventory Management. There are also status messages that you can call up at any time that indicate whether a handling unit is only planned or if the ship-to party has been notified of the arrival of this handling unit, or whether it is in the warehouse or has already been posted to goods issue.

The integrated history function also records each business process in the life cycle of each handling unit, meaning that you can track the handling unit’s path and development at any time. 

In HU-managed storage locations, all goods movements are executed through the specification of the respective HUs, and Inventory Management is performed through the handling units.

HUs can also be managed in interim storage types for instance when performing value added services for a given material or customer.
