long-haul business


Explanation:
Langstreck=long distance - as in a transportation company, but I´m not sure of the context here.
Hope this helps :-)

long-haul business


Explanation:
I agree with Carol, this must be "long-haul business", espec. if the company is in the transportation sector.

The German Langstrecke would not be used for "long term".
Cf. Schäfer, Wirtschaftsenglisch
Langstreckenflug m
(com) long-haul flight
