Select Delivery

Choose your own delivery time

Want to receive your trade earlier, faster or later than the regular process? Select Delivery allows you, the buyer, to decide your delivery time. Opt for the 06:00-08:00 time slot, 10:00-13:00 time slot or Priority (previously known as Urgent Purchase). You can even specify by day and buyer plate which time slot you want to activate. In this way, you are always flexible and you can organise your logistics as efficiently as possible.

What is Select Delivery?

The order-picking process allows us to deliver in a more personalised way in Naaldwijk (flowers) and Rijnsburg. With Select Delivery, buyers can choose whether they want to receive their trade earlier, faster or later than the regular logistics process. So, you decide in which time slot you want your products to be delivered. Step by step, we are making more and more time slots available.

Time slot: 06:00 - 08:00

Want to make sure you receive your trade as early as possible? With the 06:00-08:00 time slot, Auction Presales transactions will be delivered already before 08:00. And if we’re late? In that case, you’ll pay nothing extra for those transactions. This time slot offers the following benefits:

  • You can be certain that your Auction Presales are delivered early.
  • You'll have sufficient stock to start the day as soon as the work process commences.
  • Your Auction Presales can go to your customer already at 08:00.

Time slot: 6.00 - 11.00

With the 06:00 - 11:00 time slot you will receive your trade in your box before 11:00. This time period is ideal for combining with a later time slot to achieve more spread and avoid cross-flows.
