A year ago, VannoVa sent out its first orders from its new distribution center in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands. Now, this service is indispensable for this Dutch chrysanthemum cooperative's customers.
Reaches clients faster
The VannoVa growers had long wanted their own distribution center. A box became available at Wematrans in Naaldwijk last year. And they grabbed the chance with both hands. The distribution center has a central stock from all affiliated growers.
It ensures that the chrysanthemums are delivered more efficiently. And their buyers in various areas, including Aalsmeer, are supplied much faster. Currently, customers who order before 11:00 are often supplied before 15:00.
In full development
Laurens van der Lans runs the VannoVa distribution center. "Starting our own DC has made many things possible. We've begun thinking differently, too. It's a crucial tool with which we can truly unburden our clients."
"This is an essential development, especially for our buyers in Aalsmeer. Our webshop remains 'open' longer for them. Full use is made of the distribution center. So much so, in fact, that a year after setting up, the box has become too small."
