Mycrane, a global digital platform for the search and selection of cranes- has recently announced the election and appointment of an exclusive pan-Indian franchisee with the franchisee-partnership agreement signed at Expo 2020 Dubai.
The deal and signed agreement at the Expo Dubai 2020, currently underway in the UAE, by the Mycrane’s Founder and Director, Andrei Geikalo, and Suhail Shaikh, the chairman and managing director of Sahil Freight Express Pvt Ltd.
This partnership and the free-to-use Mycrane Service will be functional in India via the Mumbai-based Sahil Freight Express Pvt Ltd. established in 1986. The firm has extensive experience in the Freight and Logistics arena.
Sahil Freight Express Pvt. Ltd previously was an exclusive distributor for Scheurle, and was responsible for unveiling the manufacturer’s globally-renowned SPMTs, modular platform trailers, and semi-trailers to the Indian market.
Additionally, Sahil also has handled a number of heavy-lift projects and was the pioneer in establishing the concept of NVOCC/ LCL (less-than-container-load) consolidation as a service provided by freight forwarders in India.
Indian Crane Market is poised to nurture robustly across the Indian Subcontinent within the forthcoming years. The ongoing expansion of roads and metro railways and the routine maintenance and upgrading of oil refineries, cement, and power plants are all driving demand for cranes.
Andrei Geikalo, Founder and Director of Mycrane stated: “India has one of the fastest digitizing economies in the world, as well as a very positive outlook for the Indian cranes and construction sector, so we are delighted to be opening the MYCRANE service in the country.”
Andrei further added: “In Sahil Freight, we have the right partners who have a proven track record of introducing new products and services to the market. I have no doubt MYCRANE will be a big success in India.”
Suhail Shaikh, the Chairman and Managing Director of Sahil Freight Express Pvt Ltd, comments: “While the crane market is expected to be very strong in the coming years, it remains a fact that the majority of the rental equipment market in India is dominated by smaller, informal players.
Mr. Shaikh also added: “MYCRANE, therefore, has a huge opportunity to make life easier for those seeking crane rental services, by connecting them with a wide range of reliable equipment providers who have been thoroughly vetted by our team.”
He also added: “We are excited about the journey ahead and look forward to getting to work in the Indian market.”
Mycrane operates on a franchise basis and inquiries are welcomed from entrepreneurs who are interested in operating the service in their home markets.
