No other country in the world is able to export top quality fresh onions all year round. The Holland onion sector has an extremely efficient supply chain. Thanks to a strong and unique worldwide supply model of over 3500 growers, 30 sorting companies and approximately 10 bureau exporters , the risk is spread. Their mutually expertly set up and coordinated logistics processes and the reciprocal sharing of information ensure guaranteed deliveries.
The drying, storage and temperature controlled transport are all subject to controlled conditions. The ports of Rotterdam, Antwerp and Vlissingen are all located within a radius of no more than a few hours travel. The Holland onion sector can optimise the use of multimodal transport facilities, reorganising of container and cargo flow processes and regular transport services of major international shipping companies.
