Units of measure conversion
Some deals may exist where the unit of measure to which the per unit rate applies is different to the unit of measure that applies to the included turnover lines. For example, there are deals where the rate that has been agreed with the trading partner is a rate per ton but the unit of measure that applies to the included turnover is kilogram.
