Richard Heemskerk, Hortus Supplies International:

"Products at your Kenyan farm in a heartbeat"

Due to growing demand, Hortus Supplies International has found a way to deliver HSI products in the blink of an eye. By managing stock from Nairobi, the Aalsmeer based company is able to send HSI products to Kenyan growers within a day.

Director Richard Heemskerk: “In order to meet the expectations of the Kenyan growers we’ve managed to acquire storage to keep our stock. We are living in a 24/7 economy where customers expect to receive orders within 1 or 2 days. As Hortus Supplies International we want to speed up the delivery process and this is the best option for us.”

Account manager Mario Taal continues: “The transit time of containers can take up to 30 days and an air shipment can be expensive. We experienced that growers don’t want to keep a lot of stock at their farm. As of today we can offer another option: small amounts instead of bulk. We can deliver our products to greenhouses within 24 hours or they can be picked up.”

Mario Taal: “We keep listening to our customers, in the future we might consider to expend our stock in Kenya.”
