This means a different hook placement compared to the initial design of CC Solid. The change follows intensive market consultation and "has the broadest support within the horticulture chain".
Container Centralen (CC) has the aim to make its shelves on tis trolleys future proof. After a period of consultation, CC developed CC Solid. The initial design had hooks placed on the short side of the shelf.
The reason behind the initial design was to ensure the use of one type shelf per container, which facilitates the stacking, counting and sorting of shelves. Further consultation with several CC customers and market players however, showed a clear preference for CC Solid with hooks on the long side of the shelf. CC has decided to change the design accordingly.
Hook placement on the long side of the shelf ensures the CC Container works much better for.

The market consultation on the preferred implementation scenario of CC Solid is still ongoing. At the end of March, CC will choose one of the two implementation scenarios:
A: CC Solid can in due course substitute the current wooden shelves in the market
B: CC Solid will co-exist with wooden shelves
All feedback on these two scenarios is still welcome. See www.newshelves.eu.
