Container Centralen is expanding its programme of action to improve the quality of shelves by increasing the inflow of good quality CC shelves, sharing the loads out more evenly and organising stricter arrival checks.

Increasing the inflow of good quality CC shelves
Only CC quality shelves which fulfill the European Norms (EN) for moisture (in relation to outside storage), contribute towards a sustainable pool. According to an independent Danish organization, the CC plywood shelf is the only shelf that fulfills the EN norms, as a result of using the right quality adhesive. CC will actively focus on the introduction of good quality shelves, using price promotions and similar on official CC shelves. Eliminating non-CC shelves is a collective responsibility. During this process CC will equip around 1.7 million broken shelves with CC quality plywood each year.

Sharing the load more evenly
CC will actively approach all pool users, such as retailers and garden centers, to help balance contracts against usage. Discussions have already taken place with Royal FloraHolland with regard to users of Royal FloraHolland depots taking part in the CC Pool. CC also offers discounts on the introduction of shelves into the CC Pool, that are already in circulation.

Stricter arrival checks
At all Royal FloraHolland and CC depots there will be stricter arrival checks on shelves. Repair quota transfers will be actively stimulated and facilitated. CC will also expand the provision of information regarding the standard quality checks on shelves, i.e. the piano method, to include films and on-site training. With these concrete actions, CC believes the CC shelf pool will realize the quality required to provide care-free usage.
