On the container card, it is possible to calculate the measurements and volume, meaning after you added the sales order lines or transfer order lines to the container, you could calculate content and value which means that it calculates based on all the order lines and it sums up the net weight, gross weight, the total packages that you have added on a sales order or a transfer order line and the total volume, also the total amount.

So these are calculated automatically and of course only filled in if you have added information either in the setup that went through to the lines or on the line.

So for instance, the packages will only be filled in if you have manually added packages on the sales order lines or sales order header.
