Handling imported roses at Veiling Rhein-Maas

At Veiling Rhein-Maas, the Import Department ensures that flowers and plants arriving from countries such as Israel, Ethiopia, Kenya, Turkey, Spain, Portugal, Italy and other countries can be auctioned successfully. The Import Department's work includes e.g. unpacking and preparing products, an initial check of quantity and quality as well as the administration of imported goods.

Handling imported roses
The Import Handling department would like to inform Veiling Rhein-Maas’ suppliers about the services it provides, and in this issue, we will be looking at the handling of imported roses.

“Roses are one of the primary products that we handle in the Import department,” explains Angela Neubauer, head of the Import Handling and Service Centre. “Each year our rose suppliers in Kenya, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Ecuador and Italy deliver up to 100 different rose varieties, which we process in the Import Handling department. The roses, which are packed in cartons, arrive by transporters from airports in the Netherlands, Germany or Belgium, to be auctioned in Straelen-Herongen. In the next step we unpack the roses, trim their stems and place them in water with Chrysal (a flower food), which is regularly checked by our quality controllers. Then we prepare and place the buckets with the roses on the stacker lift truck, taking particular care to present the products well. In our well-equipped photo studio, we create sample product photos of the roses which we use to create the delivery forms.”
