Recently Holex has also had a vacuum cooler installed at their shipping department. This makes them the first flower exporting company in the Netherlands working in-house with vacuum cooling techniques with flowers. In cooperation with FlowerWatch, there have been developed practical procedures to make sure internally all FlowerWatch Quality Standard steps are taken: from arriving of flowers from the auctions or directly from growers to storage, picking, and packing.
Next to this, Holex also has redesigned its complete range of flower shipping boxes. Sizes that match airplane skids perfectly, and make sure that air circulation around the boxes is guaranteed so that air respiration of the flowers themselves cannot cause the flowers to heat up. With these developments, Holex is able to reduce the degree hours in such a way, that they are at an appropriate level when the consignments leave the premises.
