German term or phrase: Umfuhren
Complaint from a customer to a supplier 'Unplausible Aufbereitungszeitraeume, Umfuhren'
English translation:transfers
Explanation:
Umfuhr is not a detour; it pertains to the transfer of a consignment, a load, a container, etc. from one point to another. In the context of sea cargo, Transshipment might be another choice. However, Umfuhren is also used for the transfer of goods from one point of the city to another, and "transfer" might thus be a more generic term. If you know that all these Umfuhren are done by truck, 'truck transfer' might also be an option.
