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.
Trolleys measuring up to 2.60 metres from the floor may be delivered to Aalsmeer, Rijnsburg and Eelde.
In Naaldwijk, the delivery height may be 2.60 metres or 2.40 metres, depending on the product group. Please read the supply rules.

The grower is responsible for the correct loading of products to prevent damage further down the supply chain.
The abbreviation N08 refers to the old customised Royal FloraHolland trolley. The A08 is the customised Aalsmeer trolley, whose base and shelves are reused.
A solution has been found for this problem. We have replaced the hole of the uppermost tray with a so-called XL safety hole, which allows the uppermost tray to slide over the tube. This means that the third and fourth hole from the top can now be used. If you want to place trays even higher on a trolley, you will need to use another type of trolley or collect a loose blue tray from a packaging depot.
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.
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.
