ACM grants approval for Floriway

The Dutch Authority for Consumers & Markets (ACM) has approved the license request for Floriway. With this, the shaping of the company Floriway and the integration of the participating transport companies can officially start.

The partnership was announced in November 2020. In the meantime, the ACM has carefully investigated the intended joining of forces in accordance with a customary procedure, with a positive outcome as a result.

With its participation in Floriway, Van Zaal Transport joins the top of floriculture logistics and the logistics service provider goes from specialist to total player in one fell swoop. Merijn van Zaal, founder of Van Zaal Transport: “By joining forces with De Winter Logistics, Wematrans and Royal FloraHolland, we will be able to serve our customers even better. We look forward to building the most optimal chain for floriculture together.”

Step-by-step integration
For the upcoming time, Van Zaal Transport will continue to operate under its own name and for its own customers. The agreements made with customers remain the same. All employment contracts are also transferred to Floriway, so that the familiar faces for customers will continue to serve them in the future. Floriway will gradually be shaped in the coming period. Customers and employees will be informed about the steps to be taken.   

Innovation logistics chain
By bundling knowledge, experience and resources, Floriway wants to ensure further unburdening of the customer in the future. In addition, the new company will be able to create more efficient, flexible and sustainable floriculture logistics. Floriway, like Van Zaal Transport, remains strong in customization. “We continue to offer services for a wide range of customers, also outside the transport flows of Royal FloraHolland,” says Merijn. The expertise with regard to (local) market developments and smart automation will also be retained.

Only the transport activities of Van Zaal Transport will be taken over by Floriway. The commercial space rental and warehousing will be continued under the name Van Zaal Logistics. Merijn van Zaal will remain involved in both companies. 

Employees, customers and suppliers have been informed of this news. We are available for anyone who has questions. You can contact us via future@vzt.nl.
