Inside every warehouse is a dedicated fleet of forklifts, pallet movers, and complex material handling equipment ready for use by logistics operators during working hours. Unless they are in a 3-shift, 24/7 functioning warehouse, these fleets are bound to sit idle for one or two shifts per day, as well as entire weekends. During these hours, the idle assets could be rented out to warehouse-club style retailers such as IKEA, Wal-Mart, OBI and similar. Here logistics providers not only offer the value of market access through the platform, but can also provide advice, leveraging extensive experience and knowledge about transporting complex equipment between locations in a cost-effective way.
In the oil and gas industry, the combination of a sharing platform, business model and extensive logistics industry knowledge would allow complex drilling equipment, earth movers, and similar heavy machinery to be shared between neighboring companies at unprecedented scale. The business model would generate new revenue in the form of rental fees for the asset owner, increased volumes to logistics providers for complex transports, and lower fixed costs for operators.
