PROTECT YOUR FLOWER SUPPLY CHAIN

 

Reduced quality loss
through proper protection during flower transport

 

Transporting plants is one thing, transporting flowers is professional work. Flowers are very sensitive to temperature conditions. Fluctuations in temperature during transport can lead to a loss of quality. For this reason, flowers are often transported in a conditioned environment. The cooler the environment, the less chance there is of wilting. The Netherlands is a major player in the export of flowers. Flowers are often transported to the other side of the world by air freight. To be able to deliver the flowers to the end customer without loss of quality, protective measures are applied such as ethylene filters, temperature loggers, cargo covers and track & trace.

 

 

Transport of flowers

Storage of flowers

To minimize the loss of quality of flowers and plants, they are usually stored in a cold room. The low temperature slows down the ripening process. For this reason, an air cleaner is often placed in the cold store to filter out the harmful gases from the light. An ethylene filter is often added to the flowers themselves, which collects the ethylene gases. 


 

ALL SOLUTIONS FOR FLOWER LOGISTICS IN ONE COMPANY.


 

If you export steel or products made from steel or aluminium, you must consider the risks associated with maritime transport. After all, steel is a product that is very susceptible to damage. Imagine that your customer receives your goods and discovers rust damage for a moment. Of course, you want to avoid that at all costs. Your reputation and your relationship with the customer are at stake.

Sustainability is being dealt with more and more consciously in logistics supply chains. This also applies to transports that are equipped with desiccants. By applying desiccants during transport, cargo damage and therefore waste is reduced. Waste of goods, but think also of the waste as a result of moisture damage.

Remco has a lot of experience in the logistics sector. He has worked for companies such as DPD and DHL. At Praxas, Remco is responsible for the existing customer portfolio within the sectors Transport & Logistics and Fresh Produce. In addition, he is actively seeking partners to work with in order to achieve the goal of 0% waste in the logistics chain.
