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.
You will be informed of changes to the situation in Naaldwijk when more is known.
The grower is responsible for the correct loading of products to prevent damage further down the supply chain.
The N08 is the modified old Royal FloraHolland auction trolley. The A08 is the modified old Aalsmeer (VBA) auction trolley. During project 1-kar, both types of auction trolleys have been converted into the uniform current auction trolley.
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 a loose blue tray with a deposit can be picked up at a packaging location.
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.
In order to optimize the quality and the availability of our logistic supplies, we have drawn up rules governing their use. One of the components of these rules is the sanction policy for auction trolleys and shelves.
Improper use of auction trolleys is the use of these trolleys for purposes other than their intended purpose (primary processes). This is set out in the General Terms and Conditions for auction trolleys (Art. 3.1).
All processes for which the auction trolleys are needed in order
to trade products via Royal FloraHolland.
Examples include supply, removal, internal logistics and internal storage.
