For more than 20 years, Rhenus Fresh has handled the export airfreight for OZ Export with daily shipments to the Far East and the Middle East.
OZ Export is a leading Dutch flower export company specialising in cut flowers. This family business has been located in Aalsmeer – the heart of the Dutch flower trade – since 1959.
OZ Export processes and trades flowers from a fully temperature-controlled 36,000-m2 warehouse consisting of various halls with different temperatures, depending on the type of flowers. OZ Export buys the flowers directly from growers as well as at all major flower auctions in Aalsmeer, Naaldwijk (Westland) and Rijnsburg. The company processes about 7 million stems per week and has the most extensive assortment in the world! OZ Export specialises in high quality flowers for weddings and events for clients all over the world, who are served by more than 250 employees in Aalsmeer.
One of OZ Export's most important resources is its own online store and mobile application for flowers. Of the consignments, 40% are purchased via the online store. Customers also have the option of buying their product directly via a KOA (remote purchase) link.
For more than 20 years, Rhenus Fresh has handled the export airfreight for OZ Export with daily shipments to the Far East and the Middle East. We have developed an excellent partnership over all those years, and we are always looking to make further process improvements with better quality or efficiency in mind. Every year, there is a new logistics challenge for a new destination or a new customer.
Rhenus Fresh takes all of the logistics problems out of OZ Export's hands. Each morning, we run through the scheduling for the day, discuss risks, and consult over the possible routes, packaging and so forth.
Due to the exclusivity of the flowers, all the risks during the transport have to be kept to a minimum. We always strive to optimise the cool chain, including refrigerated transport. Rhenus Fresh works with a number of selected airlines (our preferred carriers) such as KLM, Lufthansa, Emirates and Cathy Pacific.
