Only use auction trolleys with three standard fixed shelves11 January 2021
An auction trolley has three fixed shelves as standard. We’re still seeing auction trolleys with an incorrect number of shelves, which causes problems in the chain. As of 1 January 2021, Royal FloraHolland is actively checking for the correct number of shelves.
Always check the auction trolleys that you take with you. This will avoid both costs in the chain and fines.
Stricter checks on the right number of fixed shelves
Auction trolleys with less or more than the three standard fixed shelves are a source of great frustration to everybody concerned. They disrupt the logistics chain, and entail significant additional repair costs. As of 1 January 2021, we are therefore changing our sanction policy and the way we check for the correct standard number of fixed shelves. This applies to all Royal FloraHolland locations as well as for Plantion and Veiling Rhein-Maas.
What has changed?
The guidelines for the correct use of auction trolleys and shelves will not change. We are changing the sanction policy and enforcement procedure only.
- From 1 January 2021, supplying auction trolleys with more or less than three standard fixed shelves will be prohibited.
- The Sanction Policy for Auction Trolleys and Shelves will apply to suppliers of any auction trolleys with an incorrect number of shelves.
- Packaging may only be returned on auction trolleys with the correct number of shelves, too.
Inspect the auction trolleys when you collect
Before collecting and taking auction trolleys from one of
our locations, it is important that you inspect these (or have
your service provider do so) for the presence of three
standard fixed shelves. This will avoid both costs in the
chain and fines.
Tip: tell your service provider that you will only accept auction trolleys with three standard shelves.
