It would be great to have Length, Width and Height on Item's.
Right now we have only weight and Unit Volume but it would be very handy to also have the dimensions of the three seperate dimensions.

It is already present on the Item Unit of Measure, why would you want it anywhere else?

This is already on the item unit of measure table and should be entered per unit of measure

Weights on the Item card are in Kgs
Weight and volumes per U of M are on the Item Unit of Measure table.
This data is often used in parcel carrier integration and should defiantly not be an attribute.

It is for a proces. I mean for calculating shipping costs these are must have properties, this because there are some constraints based on the length. For example a box greater than 2m costs more to ship than the box of same volume and weight which the longest side is less than 2meters.

I fail to see why it should be moved to an attribute.
I mean, there's a difference between packaging dimensions and real product dimensions. I can see the real product dimensions as attributes but packaging dimensions really should be on item itself IMO. As weight and volume are there... Volume could be even calculated from these dimensions.

Well they can contain UoM but in the current context I am using this not.
The reason I am suggesting this is because it's an property of an item. Depeding on these values defines the way of transportation. Example longer things than 2 meters cant be delivered by means of an parcel service. Basically volume and weight isn't enough. Volume is calculated from the dimensions.

For me it would make perfect sense to have this kind of information on the item table because every physical item have these properties, depending on the locale these can be showed as imperial or metric.

Current fields for Weight and Volume add no value because they contain no reference to a UoM, right ?
Therefore, Length, Width and Height also only have added value if they contain a UoM. I would however vote for moving them to an attribute, not making them part of the item table.

If it’s not for a process, like weight, then it’s a attribute.
