Bundle is a technical term for the grouping of goods in logistics. The general cargo transported as a bundle is known internationally as “collo” (engl.: trading unit). Liquid loads and gases that are not stored in a container but are pumped into a transport vehicle cannot be transported as a package. Unpackaged goods such as sand or coal are bulk or suction goods.
Bundle stands for:
- Container, a unit consisting of packaging material and product
- Packaging item, the „collo“ to be transported
- Packaging material without content, empty container

The origin of the word is quite different. Thus, the term historically stands for a measuring unit for liquids especially for wine, back then it was already bottled in barrels or bottles, the so-called containers.
