French term or phrase:(petits) emballages navettes
In a company logistics document :
"Le pôle Technique et Supports Logistiques assure aux pôles de négociation l’expertise technique et le support dans des domaines aussi variés que la sécurité maritime (vetting), l’assistance en clientèle, la définition des emballages, l’achat et la location des ***petits emballages navettes***."
"shuttle packaging"? I don't get any convincing hits on-line for this term!
Explanation: an "emballage navette" is a container used for transporting things safely, like a crate or an insulated box. I think the English would probably be something like "small transport containers"
