English term or phrase: truck loop
Please help me. I can not find the right word for "loop" in the following text: A series of truck haulage loops and truck dump stations. Along each loop is located a plate feeder were trucks are loaded.

recorrido
Explanation:
You can use 'recorrido' or 'ciclo de trabajo de los camiones'. They're fairly commonly used in the mining industry. Dump stations are botaderos. But, you got me with plate feeder. I can't seem to figure that one out, sorry.

bucle / ruta


Explanation:
I think "bucle" may work for you in your context, although you may want to use "ruta", because that's what I think it means:

English Term loop
Definition a public transport route or guideway layout which is of a closed continuous form,such as a circle or approximate rectangle
Reference Dict.Public Transport,Alba 1981
Spanish Term bucle
Definition forma de una carretera o línea de transporte que se cierra sobre sí misma en forma de anillo o casi se cierra

A cada conductor se le asigna una ruta específica o "bucle". (http://www.ups.com/latin/cr/about/spastory.html)

Hope it helps.

cinta transportadora


Explanation:
I'm not sure if I understand this right. The "loop" seems to be a device (not a route) - the trucks are loaded on it at a "feeder station" and then transported ("hauled") to some other point (the "dumping stations"?). If this is correct, then I think the translation above is more appropriate.

I have some doubt because "trucks are loaded" is ambiguous: are the trucks loaded with freight, or are the trucks themselves loaded into/onto something?
