What are benefits of the auction trolley?
Rapid delivery to your buyers begins with the right logistic supplies. That is why buyers of Royal FloraHolland can make use of trolleys at every auction location. They are easy to use and load, and simple to return, saving you time and money.
What are costs of auction trolley rental?
We hear many discussions about renting auction trolleys. In fact, you do not rent trolleys, but you do rent lock plates. A trolley may not leave the Royal FloraHolland building without a rented lock plate being correctly attached. You can rent a lock plate for a variety of periods, ranging from one day to one year. For more information about lock plate rental, please go to Lock Plates.

- The grower is responsible for the correct loading of products to prevent damage further down the supply chain.
On the N08 the tube for the tray cable is in the way of the top 5 holes
A solution has been found for this problem. We are replacing the eye of the upper tray with a so-called XL locking eye, whereby the upper tray slides over the tube. As a result, the third and fourth tray holes may now also be utilized and used from above. If you want to use trays even higher in the auction trolley, you will need another type of auction trolley or an individual blue shelve with a deposit can be picked up at a packaging location.
Does the trolley have an RFID tag?
All trolleys are equipped with an RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) tag of the UHF (Ultra High Frequency) type. Container Centralen uses the same technology with its CC containers.
What are the options for tracking and tracing a trolley?
The RFID tag can be read from a few metres away and offers many options for tracking and tracing. Royal FloraHolland already widely uses RFID for tracking and tracing throughout its premises, and there are several initiatives up and running in the supply chain too.
