Improve accountability, reduce theft & abuse
The world is moving towards the OPEX model as far as capital expenses are concerned. In the consumer space, companies such as AirBnB, Uber, etc have made their mark in providing high quality, affordable services with the help of digital media technologies. In the logistics & transportation industry, managing rental equipment is a big challenge. Apart from tracking the rented machines, the solution should measure utilization and have an alerting mechanism that helps in reducing theft of the equipment.
In recent times, we are witnessing 3PL operators providing smart warehousing facilities, whereby customers can utilize the storage facilities on a need basis, thereby eliminating huge expenses on setting up warehouses and related infrastructure. These facilities also have implemented smart logistics for indoor tracking of cargo inventory. Logistics equipment rental made easy. Now it is possible to easily track the location, utilisation, movement, working environment and staff information, besides fuel management of trucks
Equipment rental in the logistics industry is also gaining momentum, whereby companies can hire for short term to eliminate the need to spend on capital equipment, reduce manpower, totally do away with repair and maintenance aspects for specialized equipment such and cranes, forklifts, trailers, etc.
