staging station or staging area
Explanation:
In military or para-military usage, the area where troops and supplies are assembled prior to deployment is referred to as a "staging area". The term has also been adopted in an IT context and is used extensively in data warehousing and data storage operations, and it is also used in production. From the context you quote, it might fit in here as well.

"assemble" or even "set up" might work for or the later occurrences of "aufreihen", i.e. the portions are set up or assembled according to the tool used in the packaging machine.

Here are some examples, see if that might work within your context:

Let’s say that the staging area on your production floor will hold about a truckload and a quarter. This means that if you don’t get any widgets in 30 hours, you will have to stop production. If you get two truckloads at the same time, you won’t have anywhere to put the second load, and the truck will just have to sit there until you’re ready for it. Why? Because you had no storage facilities allotted for raw materials, just finished products.
[...]
If the truck gets to your dock, and it will be three hours before your staging area will hold them all, what is it to you? If you run out of widgets, you have to send people home, and maybe undergo an extensive shutdown and cleanup procedure for your assembly line that may take two or three days to get back up to operating temperatures when production starts again. You don’t care how it happens. You just don’t want it to happen, ever.
