We hear many discussions about renting auction trolleys. In fact, you do not rent trolleys, but you do rent lock plates. A trolley may not leave the Royal FloraHolland building without a rented lock plate being correctly attached. You can rent a lock plate for a variety of periods, ranging from one day to one year. For more information about lock plate rental, please go to Lock Plates.
Trolleys measuring up to 2.60 metres from the floor may be delivered to Aalsmeer, Rijnsburg and Eelde.
In Naaldwijk, the delivery height may be 2.60 metres or 2.40 metres, depending on the product group. Please read the supply rules.

The grower is responsible for the correct loading of products to prevent damage further down the supply chain.
The abbreviation N08 refers to the old customised Royal FloraHolland trolley. The A08 is the customised Aalsmeer trolley, whose base and shelves are reused.
On the N08, why is there a small tube for the shelf cable in the way when using the top five shelf holes?
This happens with fixed shelves. However, since loose shelves are used for these holes, only a limited target group is affected. To solve the problem, use a loose shelf for higher products as well. This solution costs nothing because you pay only a deposit, which you get back when you return the shelf. Please contact Customer Service for more info on the safety cable tube and the standard loading requirements for the two different types of trolleys.
All trolleys are equipped with an RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) tag of the UHF (Ultra High Frequency) type. Container Centralen uses the same technology with its CC containers.
The RFID tag can be read from a few metres away and offers many options for tracking and tracing. Royal FloraHolland already widely uses RFID for tracking and tracing throughout its premises, and there are several initiatives up and running in the supply chain too.
