Dutch term or phrase: maatvoeringen
From a transport & packaging document...

Context:

"Door reeds in de fase van de productontwikkeling
rekening te houden met maatvoeringen in de distributie kunnen dikwijls grote besparingen in de materials- en handlingkosten gerealiseerd worden."

My Kluwer and Van Dale couldn't help out, so any suggestions are more than welcome! As always, KudoZ points will be awarded asap.

Many thanks,
