Commercial Unit Law and Legal Definition

Commercial unit refers to a unit of goods that is regarded by trade or commercial usage to be a single whole. Generally, a division of commercial unit leads to impairment of value or character of its use. A commercial unit may be a single article or a set of articles or a quantity or any other unit treated for the purpose of lease or sale.

In Casazza v. Kiser, 313 F.3d 414 (8th Cir. Minn. 2002)], court held that a commercial unit may be a single article, such as machine; a set of articles, such as a suite of furniture or a line of machinery; a quantity, such as a gross or carload; or any other unit treated in use or in the relevant market as a single whole.
