Information about CC auctioning without a sample trolley22 January 2021
At our locations in Aalsmeer and Naaldwijk, you can deliver your plants in CC containers on the clock. This used to be done with a so-called sample trolley. This sample trolley came physically in front of the clock and was representative of the CC containers that were set up elsewhere. As of 4 January 2021, the sample trolley will no longer be shown in CC auctions.
What does this mean for suppliers and buyers?
- If you work in your own software package and cannot create a CC lot without a sample trolley, then the instructions for filling in the delivery form in your EAB programme will change. Watch changed instructions for completing the form here >>
- Do you work in/via Floriday? In that case, you can only offer the CC-lot without a sample cart.
- You can keep supplying your CCs to the clock as usual. The sample cart will, however, no longer be used.
- Auctioning a lot with CCs consists of two or more CCs.
- Lots with CCs are auctioned in 3 separate auction groups:
- Auction group 204 CC outdoor.
- Auction group 206 CC flowering plants
- Auction group 208 CC green plants
As of Monday 25 January 2021, the following applies:
- All CCs are auctioned as a 2nd auction group on a fixed clock in Aalsmeer and in Naaldwijk. At Aalsmeer the CCs will be auctioned on clock 17 and at Naaldwijk all CCs will be auctioned on clock 13.
- The auction order in these auction groups is determined by 'Random Supplier Draw'; the CCs of one supplier are auctioned in succession from low to high supply letter number.
- CC auction groups 204, 206 and 208 will rotate among themselves on a weekly basis.
- We are investigating whether it will also be possible to auction CCs next year.
Do you have any questions about supplying on CCs? Or would you like to know more about the options for supplying on CCs? Please contact the auctioneer or the Contact Center. They will be happy to help!
