Transport by sea is still not very common in the horticultural sector. A great deal of experience may have been already gained with decorative green products, but that is not the case for other products. We don't have enough knowledge to guarantee quality, especially when shipping times are longer than two weeks. That needs to change.
Therefore, we and our partners are investing in the knowledge development of transporting horticultural products by sea. In addition, we are carrying out pilot projects leading to the drafting of protocols for each product group.
