Who owns the CC containers?
Royal FloraHolland does not own the CC containers. A company called Container Centralen is the owner. If the containers become damaged or lost, you are obliged to pay compensation. A CC container includes one base (including four corner posts) and a number of shelves (the standard is three shelves) and is fitted with at least one green/orange CC-label (CCTAG 5) containing a readable RFID chip.
How do I rent a CC container?
Thanks to its modest dimensions, a CC container is very suitable for points of sale, for example, at garden centres. You can rent CC containers from us. You pay an amount per base and per shelf for as long as you have them in your possession. The containers come with an official CC label and a metal CC shelf.

What is the rent-free scheme?
Growers may rent any CC container obtained through a Depot Despatch for free for one day. Buyers may rent any CC container obtained through a commercial purchase (auction clock, Royal FloraHolland Connect) for free for one day.
Can I still link my numbers?
Common (default) links are links between the same types of customer numbers, in other words, a grower's number with a grower's number or a buyer's number with a buyer's number. Please note: this link applies to both CC containers and lock plates because they are both managed in the same system.
Link between grower's number and buyer's number
An exception to the default link is the link between a grower's number and a buyer's number. The first (main) Royal FloraHolland customer number in the link is also the customer number used for the rent-free scheme. If the grower's number is first, only depot issues are rent free. Commercial transactions (purchases) lose their rent-free day. If the customer's number is first, all commercial transactions (purchases) are rent free and depot issues lose their rent-free day. Please note: this link applies to both CC containers and lock plates because they are both managed in the same system.
Link with your carrier
Your view of your transactions changes after linking. Once linked, both your balance and your transactions are only visible via the first customer number. Please bear this in mind if you want to make such a link.
Transaction data and balance data are only visible on the main number. Invoices are also raised against the main number. Please note: this link applies to both CC-containers and lock plates because they are both managed in the same system.
What does the registration of the CC TAG5 label (padlock) on the CC-container mean?
In this example, you have a balance of 3662 CC containers and 13105 CC shelves at Royal FloraHolland.
- Incorrect Old: defective red label (label cannot be scanned)
- Reused Old: removed red label
- Incorrect Old: defective orange/green CC TAG 5 label (label cannot be scanned)
- Fake Old: copied red label
- Fake/Reused Old: registration of Fake/Reused red labels together
Unscannable CC TAG5 labels
Royal FloraHolland promotes the proper use of the CC pool, which is why it has taken a number of measures to prevent the misuse and reuse of RFID labels.
How does the repair quota for CC shelves work?
In order to improve the quality of the pool, Container Centralen has established a repair quota for CC shelves.
