Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Product and Service Portfolio work center.
  2. Go to the Pricing view, Freights subview.
  3. Select the Freight you created and click Edit.
  4. In the Scales table, click Add Scale.
  5. Select a unit of measure, e.g. Pallet.
  6. You see error message "Unit of measure Pallet not valid".


You can add a scale to a freight as per the scale base type you have selected in the scoping.

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to the Overview.
  3. Open the "Configure Price Strategy" activity.
  4. Click the Pricing Procedure.
  5. You can see for price component Freight you have selected the scale: Volume.

Therefore, in the freight scales you can only use a scale of type Volume.


As you selected a scale of type Volume during the scoping, you must use a volume UoM in the freight scales, e. g. Cubic meter, Liter, etc.
