Max units - the maximum value the line is valid for, e.g. 5 containers, 10 document, 5 stops, 500 kg.


Price - price per units, e.g. if per units is set to 50 and the price 100 SEK. That means the price is 100 SEK per 50 units.


Per units - price per number of cost driving units, e.g.
if per units is set to 30 and the cost driver is kg, the price is per 30 kg.


Round-up - rounds up the number of units on the invoice/shipment to the interval of per units (i.e. number of units must be evenly divisible by per units), before multiplying the price with the number of units.
If Y and number of units is 50 and per units is 20, the number of units is rounded up to 60.


Discount (units) - A discount in the cost driving unit. E.g. if the cost driver is volume (m3) and the discount is set to 10. Then if the goods are 25 m3, you will pay for 15 m3.
(10 units will be subtracted from the original units on the shipment/invoice before calculating the charge for this line.)
