How do I order packaging?
You can order packaging the way you are used to. In Rijnsburg and Eelde it is also possible to order packaging using the digital service 'Collecting and returning packaging' in My Royal FloraHolland. We are currently developing a special packaging app so you will soon be able to order packaging using your smartphone.
How do I gain access to the digital service 'Collecting and returning packaging' in My Royal FloraHolland?
- Go to www.royalfloraholland.com
- Log in to 'My Royal FloraHolland'
- Click on 'Available services' under 'My services' to activate the service.
- Add the 'Packaging collection and return' service (not to be confused with 'Logistic Supplies Online')
- Then click on 'Packaging collection and return' under 'Start web services'.
- You can order your packaging here: click for a brief set of instructions on entering orders and notifying returns.
With the packaging app you can place packaging orders anytime and anywhere and notify packaging returns. You can also review outstanding and recently processed packaging transactions in the packaging app.
That will not change. Transporters will turn in these orders in the same way as they are doing now.
The procedure for collecting lock plates and CC-containers remains the same. Therefore, you cannot use the new packaging card for this purpose. For the Aalsmeer location, this means that you need a card to collect CC-containers and the new packaging card to collect packaging.
The most important changes for packaging users are:
- Using just one packaging card at all of our locations to collect packaging and approve packaging transactions.
- The introduction of the digital transaction receipt that we send out immediately after every transaction by e-mail.
You cannot do this yourself at present. In order to change this, please contact our Customer Service. Please pass on the grower number in question and the new email address. You can give multiple email addresses.
You order your packaging card by filling in an order form.
The conditions for the use of the new packaging card can also be found there. The packaging card will be compulsory from 5 November 2018, so make sure you order your card(s) as soon as possible.
Yes, the packaging card is linked to an administration number. So if you want to collect packaging using multiple administration numbers, you will have to request a packaging card for each administration number.
The packaging card is free of charge. If you lose it, you may be charged for it.
Report the loss immediately to Customer Services so we can block your packaging card. You can request a new packaging card using the order form.
Some packaging cards are wearing out faster than expected, as a result of which the barcode is difficult to read. In order to prevent further wear, packaging card sleeves will be available from the fixed distribution and collection points from the end of October 2018 onwards. The sleeve will protect your packaging card from wear and tear. If the barcode on your packaging card is difficult to scan, you can use the order form to request a new card.
