IMAG-DLO is working on scheduling the flow of rolling containers in pot-plant nurseries. In the initial phase of the project, the internal transport systems of eleven pot-plant nurseries with rolling containers have been described in detail. The objectives were to get an impression of the real dimensions of internal transport systems in pot-plant nurseries with rolling containers; to discover which methods the managers use for strategic, tactical, and operational planning of internal transport; and to make an inventory of the main problems concerning internal transport. This paper presents the detailed results of this survey.
