German term or phrase: Kastenpakete
Sorry, there's no more context than this (from a marketing text for a big Austrian sawmill):
There's only one Google hit for this, and it's from the same text that I'm translating, which doesn't help me out very much:

Laubholzprodukte:

Eichen Klotzware, auch Kastenpakete, Treppenware bzw. Zwecksortierungen

cabinet packages
Explanation:
I don't know this for sure, but based on the meaning of Kastenmöbel = cabinet furniture and the fact that in addition to talking about raw lumber, they also mention stairway materials, I think this might be the term. A "cabinet package" could be the rough lumber to be used in making cabinets. Maybe your text will give you some clues.

Maybe \'cabinet stock\' which would be hardwood that has been milled and is suitable for making furniture. Cabinet stock is not used just for cabinets but all sorts of furniture. It\'s normally high grade hardwood.

Finish Lumber: We can provide cabinet stock, trim packages, wainscoting, door stock or any other interior of exterior finish component. We can work in Douglas fir, redwood several pine species and a variety of tropical hardwoods.
