Improving the availability of CC containers together12 December 2018
We are already working hard on preparations for the coming peak days. After all, we want to put in a top performance every day in 2019. Let’s do it! For you.
During the 2018 peak days there were too few CC containers. This is something we want to prevent for the coming peak days. Therefore, we have introduced the following changes.
Pool size up to scratch - enough contracts concluded
Container Centralen is the pool owner of the CC containers. The size of the CC pool is the number of CC containers in the individually contracts concluded with Container Centralen. During the previous peak days, the total size of the pool was insufficient. We are making CC users aware of this fact so that they can conclude additional contracts for the peak days.
Renting of CC containers by Royal FloraHolland
For the coming peak days, we have rented 25,000 CC containers from Container Centralen. By doing so, we are making an effective contribution to the total size of the pool. Should this still not be enough, then we can rent another 25,000 CC containers.
Transfer rate up by 1 cent
The number of transfers of CC containers and trays has increased considerably in recent years. Administrative transfers too can have a negative impact on the availability of CC containers. In addition, this also results in extra imbalance rides and costs. For this reason, we structurally increase the rates for transferring CC bases and trays both by 1 cent.
Peak surcharge CC containers and trays
During the peak days, a peak surcharge will apply both for renting CC containers and CC trays. In addition, we will not charge storage costs during this period. This will result in the CCs returning to our depots quicker and more of them being available.
With the above actions, we will increase the availability of the CC containers during the peak days of 2019. Let's do it! For you!
