Regarding road transport, Royal FloraHolland deals with two target groups, namely National Transport and International Transport.
National transport is provided by 70 carriers (collective). They rent lock plates mostly under their own name to offer you as supplier or buyer an optimal logistics service provision for and with Royal FloraHolland.
International transport involves 200 companies that are commissioned by buyers to provide transport. Some 40 companies have a customer number at Royal FloraHolland, allowing them to use e.g. CC-containers under their own name. International carriers can be Dutch companies or originate from the country being delivered to. A number of international transporters are commissioned by our suppliers in European countries, like Danish, Italian and Portugese suppliers.
TLN is the industry association for goods transport and logistics service provision. The Association of Floriculture Transporters (VSV) is an independent association under the flag of TLN. Its members are specialised transport companies in the collective floricultural transport sector and form a network of experts.
HubWays is a joint initiative of the floricultural sector to promote digitisation and collaboration in floriculture transport. This is expected to lead to service provision and chain efficiency that will be robust enough for the future.
HubWays provides the infrastructure for a digital platform binding the entire sector by using one logistics language. The transport flows in the sector will improve, including those between the Royal FloraHolland marketplaces.
