English translation:cargo handling (companies), stowing (companies), stevedoring company, stevedoresstevedores
Explanation:
It seems that cargo handling is the most generally used term.

According to Eurodicautom, a Stauerei is a stowing company - the most obvious translation.

Stevedoring is the term originally used in shipping and so it's international i.e. the same word is used in the major languages althoug with national endings - but it is becoming old-fashioned. Those who do this kind of work are stevedores.

Here are a few examples:

1) SSA, (50 percent) Stevedoring
Services of America, U.S. company with over 90 years of
experience, considered the largest U.S. independent stowing
company.

2)SSA's personnel are experts at managing and handling every form of cargo.

3)The International Cargo Handling Co-ordination Association (ICHCA) is a membership organisation founded in 1952 dedicated to the promotion of efficiency and economy in the handling and movement of goods, from origin to destination, by all modes, and at all phases of the national and international transportation chain.
Becoming a corporate member of the only worldwide organisation dealing specifically with handling of cargo by air, sea, rail and road, costs about £300 depending on currency fluctuations.
