Action to increase the availability of CC containers02 February 2021
Almost everyone is looking forward to putting their flowering plants outside. We’ve received indications from the market that the demand for CC containers could be great this coming spring.
Royal FloraHolland is preparing to be able to fulfil the desired availability of CC containers as much as possible during the upcoming busyness of the peak period. What are the various actions we're taking to increase this, this year?
Below, you can read about the already planned actions in regards to increasing the availability of CC containers during the peak period. If further actions need to be taken during the spring, we will of course consider whether, and if so, which additional actions can be taken.
Extra CC containers available at the Royal FloraHolland CC depots
This year, we have made arrangements with Container Centralen to have an additional 41.000 CC containers available during the peak period. That means we have 16,000 more than in previous years. In addition, there will also be 25,000 CC containers ready to be ordered for us. Combined with the other measures, we can increase the availability with around 75,000 CC containers.
No storage costs during peak period
During the busy peak period, you will not have to pay any storage costs for CC containers and shelves. This way, you can store you CC material without any costs at our depots, which means there will be more CC containers available. This year, the peak period starts on the night of Sunday 28 February to Monday 1 March 2021. During the peak period, a peak surcharge applies to the rental of CC containers as well as lock plates. The peak surcharge ensures that the CC containers are handed over more quickly, which means we can also hand them out again sooner.
There is more taken out from one depot than handed in or vice versa. This is why there are dozens of transports taking place every day between our locations. We divide the CC material with the intention of having enough CC material available at every one of the locations.
