Product group Lisianthus to start with flower bucket Fc588 on 11 March 201923 January 2019
Every day, we work to improve our logistics services and to increase chain efficiency where possible. With the introduction of the new efficient flower bucket Fc588, we are responding to the increasing use of CC containers in the export trade and the reduction in lot size.
On 11 March 2019 product group Lisianthus will start using this new packaging. Other groups will follow in phases in the course of 2019 in order to ensure sufficient availability of the Fc588, also during the peak period.
Product group Lisianthus will be the first to start with Fc588
On 11 March 2019, the product group Lisianthus will start with the clock and/or direct supply in Fc588/598. This concerns all Royal FloraHolland locations including Veiling Rhein-Maas and Plantion. With their year-round production and compact group of suppliers, we can optimally supervise this introduction. From 4 March 2019, the relevant packaging will be available from our Packaging Locations in Aalsmeer, Naaldwijk and Rijnsburg in a regulated way for Lisianthus suppliers only. Use for products other than the specified product groups is prohibited. We will provide information on the further roll-out at a later date.
FPC Lisianthus chair Marcel van der Lugt (Lisianthus nursery Gebr. Van der Lugt) is enthusiastic: "As Lisianthus growers, we are happy to be able to introduce the new packaging! This way, we can increase efficiency within the chain (especially on CC containers), resulting in more sustainable transport. The cooperation with the auction went very smoothly and we can start delivering Lisianthus in the new packaging on 11 March."
With its smarter dimensions compared to the current Fc577, the Fc588 offers:
- Higher load factor:
- +50% on CC containers (6 instead of 4 buckets per layer).
- +11% on trolleys and cage carts (10 instead of 9 buckets per layer).
- Lower chain costs.
- Reduced CO2 emissions.
- Improved design (including relief for sticker removal, optimization of internal space).
The rates for Fc588 and Fc598 are (equal to Fc577 and Fc597):
|Fc588||bucket||€ 4,-||€ 0,14|
|Fc598||support shelving||€ 3,-||€ 0,12|
|Fc998||bucket + support shelving||€ 7,-||€ 0,26|
