How it all works
Over the past years, we have mastered several skills. One of the most crucial lessons for us in this fast-paced industry has been punctuality. We respect time - be it yours, the airlines’ or the flowers’.

We book the space based on the number of boxes ordered, taking into account loading equipment, pivot weight and chargeable dead freight.
