Select the unit of measurement
the allowed units of measurement allow the carrier to quote in one of these selected units.

This allows you to benchmark different pricing scenarios next to each other.
Watch out: when selecting unit of measurement, this means you will need to have this data available in either the simulation file or in the shipment module when using the freight engine.
