Extra rental of 25,000 CC containers
For the coming peak days, Royal FloraHolland has rented 25,000 CC containers from Container Centralen. Furthermore, in the event of scarcity, we have an option to rent another 25,000 CC containers.
In addition, we have taken further measures to increase the availability of CC containers. Which measures have been taken?
Pool size adequate due to sufficient contracts
Container Centralen is the pool owner of the CC containers. The size of the CC pool is the number of CC containers in the contracts concluded individually 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.
Transfer fee up by 1 cent
The number of transfers of CC containers and CC shelves has increased considerably in recent years. Administrative transfers can also have a negative impact on the availability of CC containers. In addition, this creates an extra imbalance in rides and costs. For this reason, we are structurally increasing the fees for transferring CC bases and shelves by 1 cent in both cases.
Peak surcharge CC containers and CC shelves
During the peak days, a peak surcharge will apply for renting both CC containers and CC shelves. In addition, we will not charge storage costs during this period. As a result, the CCs will be returned to our depots more quickly and more CC containers will be available.
With the above measures, we will increase the availability of the CC containers during the peak days of 2019. We do this for your convenience!
