We have inventory items (skids of paper) that come in 48,000 and  30,000 and 8,000 sheets to a skid.
Those skids have boxes of 500 sheets, so the 30000 has 60 boxes, etc.

So we can receive SKIDS *and* partial shipments... how do I set up my UOM and packages so that I can receive (95% of the time) skids of paper, but then also receive (5% of the time) partial shipments - and be able to know how many SHEETS I have in stock.  Any suggestions?

Much thanks in advance!   Heart ACS!

Hi, is your smallest unit of issue a single SHEET? 

Thanks for a kind feedback!

No, a SKID has numerous BOXES, each with a # of SHEETS.  If we need to ship a broken up SKID that normally has 80 BOXES and ship lets say 20 BOXES... that's the issue.  Most of the time we ship and receive SKIDS, but the supplier likes to know how many SHEETS we have in stock (they don't track SKIDS per se. - if they order 500,000 SHEETS it comes as an order for 50 SKIDS on our shipper order.

 Does each box contain same number of units (sheets of paper)? Also, if the sheets are boxes then I would use the term Pallet. If not, it would be rather a skid.
