Non- and early auction days

Check the overview of 2024

Auctioning an hour earlier on the busiest days means the clocks and our logistics process start earlier. This creates the opportunity to deliver your transactions to buyers earlier on busy auction days. That's good news for your customers.

The premise is that, as in previous years, there will be high-quality logistical services (particularly fulfilment of direct trade and logistic supplies) for suppliers and customers on days when there is no auction

Labour market tightness is expected to persist, and the period around the public holidays traditionally still peaks in terms of workload. If it turns out that an early auction day isn’t necessary after all, this will be communicated no later than three weeks in advance.

There is an additional possibility for logistics to announce maximum 4 additional early auction days. This gives flexibility to scale up if service provision comes under pressure.
If this is taken advantage of, we will communicate this no later than three weeks in advance.
