German term or phrase: Liegeversand
Hi, this term is from a text describing appropriate labeling to be placed on clothing packaging by a clothing supplier.

It is in reference to a diagram of different kinds of boxes. Some of the boxes are for "Hänge-Versand + Kleider+Röcke- Liegeversand"

Does anyone know what this might be?

Thank you in advance for you help,

Moabit

lay down wardrobe box or flat wardrobe box


Explanation:
i'm familiar with hanging wardrobe boxes, so maybe "lay down wardrobe box" or "flat wardrobe box" might work well in this context.

flat-packed goods


Explanation:
Just "flat-packed goods", short and simple, would be adequate in your context.

"Hanging garments" would be my tip for "Hänge-Versand".

In Schwaig ITG benefits from the largest hanging garment facility of a logistics service provider in Southern Germany. It has a capacity of more than half a million parts for both static and dynamic storage. Additional benefit: hanging garments and flat packed goods are stored at the same location. This leads to consolidated shipments and reduces costs.
