Gladiolus HD packaging

A new development is J.M. van Berkel's custom high density packaging of gladioli for exporter B.J. Duyvenvoorden of Naaldwijk, The Netherlands. In stead of the usual 6 x 90 gladioli on one ‘Dane’, van Berkel now packs 1000 gladioli stems, nearly twice as many, on the same cart, cutting both the risk of damage during transport as well as shipping costs to Portugal, where the gladioli are required for the Comemoração de todos os Fiéis Defuntos, All Souls' Day.

In 2011 this custom packaging has been refined further: up to 1700 or even 2800 gladioli packaged in a single car, once again bringing down shipping costs and literally expanding the market for gladioli into regions not previously within reach.
