Note
See the following video to learn more about packing and the concept of a handling unit (HU):

If no packing information is received, the actual packing information can be entered manually during the physical goods receipt process. You can also use a master record in SAP S/4HANA called packaging specifications to inform the user how the products should be packed.

With packaging specifications it's also possible to trigger an automatic packing process in the background. Automatic packing means that the system creates HUs in SAP EWM. This of course does not trigger the physical packing itself. Automatic packing is helpful if you have agreed with a supplier about standard packing of a material, but no specific information is sent from supplier to you with every delivery.
