For flower export, it is especially important that the flowers stay fresh. You have to think about 24-48 hours until the flowers are at the auction. So, time is critical when exporting flowers. The goal is that the flowers stay fresh for twelve to fifteen days when they have reached the customer.
Most of the time, the flowers are sent in some kind of boxes. Also, aircraft holds are used in order to pack a large amount of flowers in one box. However, there also flowers that really need water to stay alive. Therefore, a sealed water container is used on the stem ends of the flower. One other way is to transport flowers is in a ‘Dutch flower bucket’. This is a container where the flowers are watered along their way to their destination.
