While the Valentine’s Day Holiday always provides it’s challenges, it takes a complete team effort here at DVFlora to help facilitate the dramatic increase in business over the past week and a half. The first piece of the puzzle starts with shipping from the farms. We have several employees strategically located in South America and California to help assure our product ships accurately, on time, and meets our quality specs. From there, we have logistics team members monitoring freight space for our 38 Miami truck departures, 14 California trucks, as well as shipments from Florida, Canada, New York, Mexico, and other parts of the country.
Once the product arrives here in Sewell, NJ our Operations team of over 200 employees are dedicated to putting away product for our night time operations to pick and pack all of the orders. Then it’s time for our 100+ “DVFleet” route drivers to hit the road before the sun comes up, delivering package upon package of fresh cut flowers, supplies, and plants.
From February 5th through the 14th, we packaged and delivered over 156,000 pieces to 3,000+ retail florists in the Northeastern US alone. It truly is amazing to witness the teamwork, dedication, and passion everyone has for helping to make this holiday, and everyday here at DVFlora a success! Just as our mission statement says, “We Aspire to Be Our Customers’ Most Valuable Supplier!”
We would like to wish everyone a Happy and Successful Valentine’s Day!
