Supply control and frequently asked questions24 March 2020
Here is an extra newsitem in connection with the many questions regarding the tightened supply regulation: a short update on today's pricing, developments in Floriday and answers to the 5 most frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the tightened supply regulation.
Price formation and turnaround (24th March)
The total number of units delivered today was slightly lower than yesterday. This came down to about 10 million pieces (flowers and plants). The new supply regulation is visible here.
Compared to yesterday (23rd March) the price formation today (24th March) was €0.02 lower. Flowers in particular received a lower price. This is probably due to the measures announced yesterday in the United Kingdom. Brits will only be allowed to leave their homes immediately if it really doesn't go otherwise. This was also reflected in the reduction in the number of Clock pre-sale purchases.
In the case of garden plants, the price formation has remained virtually the same. The total turnaround percentage today was about 5% (divided feed of flowers and plants).
The Floriday support team yesterday received a lot of questions about the new supply regulation. Many questions could be answered quickly and/or can be passed on to the auctioneer. Floriday is currently working on the further development of the overview screen. At the moment a grower can see all the articles he has available throughout the year. Soon, only the article the grower has today will be shown. In addition, we are working on a notification option whereby growers can receive a message if there is too much supply and as soon as a supply percentage is changed by the auctioneer.
There is a lack of clarity about what a minimum of one full cart means in terms of numbers compared to the (sometimes very low) numbers mentioned in Floriday?
If a supplier supplies a maximum of one trolley, it may be loaded. If a supplier supplies more than one trolley, then the maximum numbers specified in the supply regulation will apply. This allows us to accommodate the relatively smaller growers in the supply costs. However, a grower may not apply this on a daily basis at every location and they will have to make a choice per location. Three full carts at three different locations is therefore not allowed.
Does the percentage shown in Floriday apply per clock or over all clocks?
At Floriday you will see the total, maximum supply you are allowed to supply. This is not subdivided per location. However, you may divide the calculated maximum supply over the desired clocks/product groups yourself, as long as this does not result in supply excesses. If in doubt, contact the auctioneer.
In the numbers for 2019, has Buiten de Veiling Om (BVO), Eelde and Veiling Rhein-Maas also been taken into account?
The maximum numbers for 2019 have been determined by the clock supply and direct trade that has taken place at Naaldwijk, Rijnsburg and Aalsmeer. BVO, Eelde and Veiling Rhein-Maas are not taken into account.
In my opinion, the numbers in Floriday are not correct. I see deviating numbers or no numbers. What should I do?
For these specific questions you can contact the Floriday support team. The support team can be reached via the chat, email@example.com and by phone on 0174-352070. They can help you or advise you to contact the auctioneer.
