Royal FloraHolland's new flower bucket

The new multi-use flower bucket Fc588 and its rack Fc598 was brought into use on 11 March 2019! Filled with the product Lisianthus, the first transactions have taken place. Which product is next in the phased roll-out?

Every day, Royal FloraHolland works to improve its logistics services and to increase chain efficiency where possible. Fc588 and Fc598 are going to make important contributions to achieve this goal.

IMPROVEMENT OF LOAD LEVEL THROUGH NEW PACKAGING

Due to the increasing use of CC containers in the export trade and the transaction reduction for international customers, the trade requires a different multi-use flower bucket. Royal FloraHolland responds to this with this newly developed flower packaging.

Edwin Beekman (Managing Director Hamifleurs) is enthusiastic: "We are very happy that this new packaging was brought into use. This way, we can increase efficiency within the chain, especially on CC containers. This results in more sustainable transport to our customers. There will be logistic advantages both for us and for our customers."

ADVANTAGES

With its smarter dimensions compared to the current Fc577, the Fc588 offers:

·       Higher load level:

o   +50% on CC containers (6 instead of 4 buckets per layer).

o   +11% on trolleys and cage carts (10 instead of 9 buckets per layer).

·       Lower chain costs

·       Lessened CO2 emissions

PHASED ROLL-OUT: ALSTROEMERIA WILL FOLLOW IN JUNE

Royal FloraHolland is opting for a phased introduction per product group in order to ensure sufficient availability, including during the peak period. Use for products other than the specified product groups is prohibited. Alstroemeria was selected as the second product group. The release date for Alstroemeria is currently scheduled for June 2019. As of that moment, the product Alstroemeria can be supplied and bought in the Fc588/598 via Clock and Direct.
