Six seasonal flowers are starting 23 September 2019 with Fc58819 August 2019
In March 2019, we introduced the new efficient multi-use flower bucket (Fc588) with matching support shelving (Fc598) into our packaging pool. This roll-out continues on 23 September 2019, with the Gypsophila, Hypericum, Chamelaucium (Waxflower), Limonium, Veronica and Euphorbia products.
Whenever possible, we work on improving our logistics services and increasing the efficiency every day. With the introduction of the new efficient flower bucket Fc588, we are responding to the increasing use of CC containers in the export trade, working on further sustainability and ensuring that the chain costs are reduced.
Release of six seasonal flowers
Starting Monday 23 September 2019, growers of the seasonal flowers below can supply (both Clock and Direct trade) in Fc588 and/or Fc598:
- Chamelaucium (Waxflower)
- Euphorbia (not on picture)
Earlier this year the product groups Lisianthus and Alstroemeria started using the Fc588 (and Fc598). As of now, over 2.5 million rotations in the new packaging units have taken place.
We are opting for a phased introduction per product group in order to ensure sufficient availability, also during the peak period. Use by groups other than the released product groups is not yet permitted.
Issue Fc588/ Fc598 starts 16 September 2019
For the suppliers of the six product groups the Fc588 and Fc598 will be available as of Monday 16 September. The regulated issue takes place from our packaging locations in Aalsmeer, Naaldwijk, Rijnsburg and Eelde, and at Veiling Rhein-Maas and Plantion.
Although we aim for a full replacement of the Fc577, we are not imposing any obligations. If, for instance, you would like to use your remaining protective collars for the Fc577, that is possible.
Roll-out process 2019
We expect to release another series of product groups for use of the Fc588/Fc598 in November 2019. We will inform you as soon as we know more.
