Collecting packaging Aalsmeer
You will always need a packaging card. These can be ordered from the Logistics Supplies department or the counter in the Logistic Supplies Centre (LSC) by means of an application form. You will receive a letter when your pass is ready. You can then pick up the pass, showing the letter and valid proof of identification.
What will change after the introduction of the new container system?
We shall soon be introducing the new container system, and you will notice the following change:
- The paper transaction docket (for collection and return) is being replaced by a digital version. It will contain the packaging codes and the quantities, but not the prices.
- With the new digital service 'Packaging collection and return', you will be able to submit packaging orders and notify returns in advance via My Royal FloraHolland or the new container app. We shall inform you when the new service and app become available.
Packaging is distributed from three locations:
