|German term or phrase: Stapelstauchdruck|
|Translation about the shipping of wood|
This is what I found. Have a look at the following web pages:
When you click on "Stapelstachdruck" you get:
Die Stauchprüfungen (Statische Prüfungen) dienen dazu, die
Festigkeit des Packstückes
oder den Schutz des Inhaltes
gegenüber einer Stauchbean-
spruchung zu beurteilen
and the anlog English page lists:
The box compression tests
serve to judge the strength
of the package or the protection
of the content when submitted
to box compression.
I've also checked the term with other English sites and it seems to fit.
In the second link you find a different German term "Schachtelstauchwiderstand", however when you check the meaning, you'll find the meaning is identical.

No more than a guess due to the lack of context.
From what I've seen on Stapelstauchdruck, the term refers to the pressure that a box must be able to withstand when on the bottom of a stack of boxes. Don't know if this applies within your context ("shipping of wood" is somewhat inconclusive - are we talking raw timber, i.e. logs? firewood? something else altogether?).
Ernst lists Stauchdruckprüfung f (Verpackung) / stacking test
and I based my suggestion on that. Since wood (logs, firewood, etc.) can also be stacked, I thought the term might fit into your context.
And I can only second (or, in this case, third...) what's been said about context. The more context you provide, the better and more suitable the answers you receive...
