It depends on the details but there exist lots of ways. For example, two simplest approaches from two different point of view:
1) use Combiner/Seperator objects from standart library objects (see related simbits for their use)...
2) Batch/Unbatch steps within processes panel...

Also, you can use Vehicle object from standard library (or worker object, whichever you prefer) as if it is a box, and adopt its related properties to your modeling logic. For example, set initial capacity to the number of entities that should be in the box. Also, set its minimum dwell time type property to dwell until full, etc...
