Every distinct piece of packaged freight that will be moved with a forklift, pallet jack or by hand is a handling unit. Every handling unit in a shipment should have at least two shipping labels (on adjoining sides) to make sure the forklift operators and drivers have a good view of where the shipment is going.
Every handling unit should be labeled if its contents are fragile, contain hazardous material or if the handling unit is not stackable.
