When you have bundled sales order lines or transfer order lines into a container, it’s possible to calculate the measurements and value for that container.

So from the container card, you can calculate content and value which calculates the sum of net weight handling or the crossword handling, the volume and the total amount of packages, and this all information coming from the order documents that you have entered and coming from items to the order documents and further on so this is a way to calculate the complete information for this container.

So with a bundle here of one transfer order and three sales orders, and I’ve chosen at 20 feet container which I know have a cubic of 36.5 metric meters. I can see that for now, it’s 21 metric meters so there will be space enough on this one. So it’s possible to calculate and int sums up from all the order lines.
