With the merger between ‘Bloemenveiling Aalsmeer’ and ‘Flora Holland Naaldwijk’ in 2008, the need arose to align all auction carts and thus develop a uniform interchangeable flower trolley.

Modify and expand trolleys
After a long and intensive period of preparation and development, Alcomij was eventually appointed as the main contractor for modifying and expanding the entire auction cart fleet. The conversion of the first batch of 137,500 so-called Naaldwijk carts started in January 2010. A second batch of 130,000 Aalsmeer carts was modified in May 2010.

For the production of the new flower trolleys, Alcomij erected several production locations with the most advanced production lines in order to process the production of the flower trolleys as efficient as possible with a controlled flow.

After the modification of all the auction carts and the production of the completely new type of flower trolleys, Flora-Holland has only been working with this new standard type trolley since the end of 2012. The Flora-Holland 1-Kar flower trolley.
