Even playing field through adjustment of rental structure for flower bucket Fc56612 December 2018
On 1 January 2019 we will adjust the rental structure of the Fc566 and Fc596. We will levy the rental fee twice upon issue, and refund one rental fee to the supplier upon supply through the Royal FloraHolland, Plantion or Veiling Rhein-Maas locations. This will prevent improper use of the packaging pool. Nothing will change for the customer.
In recent years, improper use of Fc566 and Fc596 has increased. Not only does this lead to loss of rental income from our packaging pool, it also creates an uneven playing field. With the adjustment of the rental structure we can prevent this.
Approach to the uneven playing field
Improper use concerns, among others, companies that collect packaging from our packaging warehouses and use this packaging for trade flows without settling the cost through an auction platform. In this case, only one rental fee per packaging cycle is paid instead of the required two fees. This gives companies that do not settle payment through an auction an advantage over companies that do. This concerns primarily the flower bucket Fc566 and the corresponding support shelving Fc596. By adjusting the rental structure we can prevent this uneven playing field.
Adjusting the Fc566/596 rental structure
As of 1 January 2019, we will levy the rental fee for Fc566 and Fc596 twice upon issue and refund one rental fee to the supplier upon supply. On balance, a supplier that pays through the auction will pay the same fee in the new situation as he did in the old situation. For customers, payment of the rental amount through the commercial transaction remains unchanged. See a schematic overview of the change below.
Result for suppliers remains the same
Suppliers who use Fc566/596 and who settle their products through the auction will pay the same packaging rental fees as in the situation prior to 1 January 2019. The impact for proper usage is restricted to the short term pre-financing of a relatively limited rental fee. This adjustment creates a fairer playing field where an equal amount is paid for equal usage.
