German translation:trunking und manifesting (manifestieren)
Explanation:
This is what I found for "trunking":
Trunking (see Auto-legging also)
The Trunking facility works in conjunction with the Traffic Management System to enable multi-depot operations to handle one job via several depots. It will create a master job to which 'legs' required to complete the job are attached.The customer can be invoiced via the master job, hiding the 'legs' carried out by the haulier, or via the individual legs to show the complete picture. Both ways provide the ability to split the overall revenue between the depots and vehicles that carried out the job & Auto-legging

This module works in conjunction with the trunking module. Auto-legging converts normal jobs to multi-leg trunk jobs.
Using a series of area look-ups and service descriptions, routing profiles are set up with standard intermediate legs but
the collection and delivery points are unique. Revenue is split between legs and standard charges (e.g. ferry charges)can be added as subcontractor costs & Vehicle Manifesting/Groupage
A growing number of our customers require the Traffic System to cater for Groupage type operations, the result of this work is the Vehicle Manifesting System. It is fully integrated with the Roadrunner Traffic Management System and
gives the user the ability to select jobs via grid references and assign them to a manifest. Initially a manifest does not have to contain a vehicle, each area's work can be built up as manifests throughout the day, then broken down
amongst vehicles performing the work. A manifest for each vehicle/area can be printed at any time, including a Trailer
loading sheet if required. Each manifest can have costs attached to provide full profit reporting.(http://www.roadrunner.uk.com/products/rr_traffic_info.html)
Trunking: in Muret-Sanders:
1. Hauptteil
2. (tel/comp)Fernleitung, Fernverbindung
3. Hauptstrecke, Hauptlinie
and more, but unlikely relevant.
manifest in Muret-Sanders:
Lade-, Warenverzeichnis
Ladungsmanifest, Frachtliste.

I tend to say to leave trunking as is
and translate manifest. Go to the following page and you will see that it
is left alone in German:http://www.acer.de/news/pr170300.shtml
and when I looked on .google.com, I found that the word manifesting is already germanized.
Good luck,
Lis

Verkehrsleitung und Bekanntgabe


Explanation:
In a traffic related sense, trunking is Verbindungsleitung or Verkehrsleitung, and I guess manifesting here is a nomer for manifestation. I understand this to be about arranging traffic flow and announcing these arrangements. More context would be required to be sure.

Verpackung [Verladung?] / Manifesterstellung


Explanation:
Without more context to go on, I'd venture to guess that trunking refers to Verpacken (possibly Verladen).

Trunk is a large (overseas type) suitcase, at least in US parlance.

manifest of cargo
(com) Ladungsmanifest n
(ie, list of cargo taken on board a ship; it is in reality a summary of all the bills of lading covering the ship's cargo)

Hope this helps.
