French term or phrase: co-chargement
This is related to transportation/logistics and as far as I can gather from the context is when one transport company allows another access to its distribution network. Does anyone know an English equivalent for this term, or another explanation? Grateful for any suggestions.

English translation:co-loading
Explanation:
The standard term in the shipping industry.

Here are two references from documentation on the Carrier Automated Tariff Systems (CATS): "Co-loading means the combining of cargo…" (www.fmc.gov/cfr/520.htm)

and "..overall review of the co-loading rules that may occur..."
(www.ffoct.fr/fr/ffoct/news/News994B.htm)

Consolidated Freightways has this to say (at the first web site below):
"Rule 7: CO-LOADING IN FOREIGN COMMERCE... Co-Loading means the combining of cargos..."

And here's the U.S. government's General Services Administration (GSA Pub. No. 100-D, Section 2): "...when the rules prohibit the breaking of locks or seals or the co-loading of additional freight..." (see the second web site below).

Cheers, HC

shared load agreement


Explanation:
Angolano may well be right, but this is what occurred to me, given the 'transport' and 'charge'.

Rather than the abstract concept of distribution, amybe it's a question of literally sharing loads between trucks of different companies, obviously going to common destinations.

Thus as a possible alternative:

Load Sharing Agreement

joint shipment agreement


Explanation:
See if this works for you: it is what I could find, doing a variety of searches, that is actually related to your context.

the *distribution* option has to do with marketing, not shipping.

And "load agreement" doesn't come up in any relevant context. Nor does "shared".
