German term or phrase: Absortieren
Sollte ein Betreten des Lagers ausserhalb der ueblichen Geschaeftszeiten zwischen 7.00 Uhr und 19.00 Uhr bzw. am Wochenende notwendig werden, insbesondere, um Kunden das Absortieren aus dem Freilager zu ermoeglichen, muss dies durch X mindestens 24 Stunden vorher bei Y angemeldet werden. Is this a bonded warehouse?

English translation:selection
Explanation:
absortieren is when an einzelhaendler goes to the stock of a grosshaendler and chooses the wares that he wants to sell on. Hoep this helps someone else to find a more industry-specific term than "selection". If there is one.
