As far as I can understand there isn't a one click way to do it. But you need to set a system that does that only once.
I'm not sure what is it that you have in mind, but I tried to devise a situation that you'll need to move all of the elements of a container at once and change the z-depth at the same time. Check the attached capx. Notice that the tanks, while been dragged, they pop on top of the clouds. When dropped they move behind the clouds.
