Transport your products easily and efficiently
Rapid delivery to your buyers begins with the right logistic supplies. As a buyer of Royal FloraHolland, there are CC containers available for your use at every auction location. CC containers are narrow roller containers that are primarily suited for transporting plants. You can easily collect or return these containers and just pay for use, storage and handling.
The CC containers carrying your products that you receive are free of charge for the first day. Afterwards, you pay a fixed rate for use, storage and handling. There is a limited amount that is stored for free in one of our depots: 22 bases and 60 shelves.
We charge the rental of your CC containers once a week.
Each year Royal FloraHolland defines a peak period during the busiest supply period of the year. In this period you do not pay storage charges, but a peak surcharge is imposed on the rental rate. The dates are listed below in the rates overview for 2017.
Royal FloraHolland ensures that enough CC containers are available at each auction location (including Bleiswijk and Veiling Rhein-Maas). A CC container consists of a base with four corner posts and several shelves. It is also fitted with an official CC-label, a metal CC-plate and a RFID-chip (Radio Frequency IDentification).
You can collect CC containers and shelves at any location. Or you can return the containers you obtained when you bought products. When collecting them, you need to show your ID, a packaging card or packaging coupon booklet.
You can administratively transfer CC containers and shelves yourself via Logistic supplies online or a transfer form (then we shall do it for you). Transferring helps to keep your balance of CC containers that you are using as small as possible. That saves you time and money: you avoid unnecessary storage and do not have to physically transport CC containers and shelves about.
The CC containers are the property of Container Centralen, an external party.
