Japanese term or phrase: 抱き合わせ
I know that this term means "packaging of commodities of different types into one package" (異なる種類の商品を一つに包装すること in Japanese); I just wonder if there is an equivalent thereof in English. Can anyone help me? Thank you!

English translation:mixed loading
Explanation:
If it's referring to 混載 (loading different types of goods into a container or a pallet), it's called mixed loading. It seems a bit different from "packaging" different types of goods together, though.
