In order to process your flowers at the Import Handling department, it is necessary that you complete your packing list correctly. By correctly we mean that the following information is included: product code, product name and all products' sortingcodes.
You can find the sortingcodes at www.vbn.nl, or you can view the Helianthus example.
Please take into account that you need to submit your packing list 24 hours before the delivery of the products.
The email address is: email@example.com
Please ensure that your flowers are accompanied by a description, so that we can immediately recognise and distribute the various varieties.
For this purpose, we ask you to place a sheet of paper with the variety name between the various varieties, so that we know exactly which variety we have to handle. In this respect, it doesn't matter whether you supply your flowers in a box or CC container.

We kindly ask you to follow the abovementioned procedure, so that we may optimally process your flowers for the auction.
If you have questions regarding the grading code, or about the correct completion of the packing list, please contact your Area Manager Import or the Import Handling department.
