Nationwide Auctioning Cut Anthurium pilot
A Nationwide Auctioning pilot will start on Thursday 3 September 2020. Cut Anthurium is the first product group of the Nationwide Auctioning Pilot. All cut anthurium growers will participate in the pilot.
The pilot will be carried out using the current auction systems, These were not originally built for nationwide auctioning. The pilot is therefore not a representative test for the final situation. It can, however, teach us a lot! With this pilot, we are taking the first steps towards the alignment of certain aspects within the auction, such as one auction time for a product group and the process of pressing a button for quantities. We will also test parts of our logistics services, such as transport between the locations. Even if this is a different location than where the products were supplied.
The cut Anthurium Nationwide Auctioning Pilot will start on Thursday 3 September 2020 at 7:10 am at clock 6, where the supply of Aalsmeer and Naaldwijk will be auctioned consecutively. In Rijnsburg, we will maintain the local clock during the pilot. Buyers in Rijnsburg will of course be able to purchase on the nationwide clock via Remote Buying (KOA). During the pilot, Royal FloraHolland will handle the transport of the purchased products between our locations. It will do so for all locations.
