MYCRANE, a Dubai-based digital disruptor for the cranes and construction sector, is to roll out the global online crane rental platform in three core Asia-Pacific (APAC) markets, following the signing of a franchise agreement covering Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia.
MYCRANE added that its best-known tool is its free-to-use crane rental service, which empowers the clients to save valuable time and money by entering details of their lifting requirements on a carefully-designed web portal. Registered crane rental firms then respond with their commercial offer, allowing clients to select the best proposal and award the job directly on MYCRANE’s website.
The platform also offers a suite of other services including support for engineering, a free-to-use Selector tool, which enables users to identify the right crane for their lift, and a Marketplace where equipment, rigging equipment, spare parts, auxiliaries, and industry vacancies can be posted.
MYCRANE added that the franchisee for Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia has been handled by Singapore-based Allan Taylor, previously an executive at Mammoet, and has extensive experience in the petroleum industry.
MYCRANE CEO and founder Andrei Geikalo, himself a former commercial director at Mammoet, stated: “We are delighted to welcome Allan at a time of great opportunity for those serving the thriving cranes and construction industry in Asia. APAC is often seen as an exciting region for business development – and with good reason.”
According to data and analytics company GlobalData report, the APAC nations are expected to generate considerable activity for crane operators in the coming years. The construction industry in Indonesia, for an illustration, is likely to record growth of 7.2% in real terms in 2022, surpassing pre-pandemic output levels. It also noted that the Indonesian government has allocated $27.1bn for infrastructure development including six new airports, 6,624km of railway, and 205km of a new road.
Allan Taylor stated: “I am looking forward to helping equipment suppliers in the three countries to increase the utilization of their fleets, while also working with contractors to help them save time and money on the crane procurement process. I can’t wait to get started with MYCRANE and welcome local crane suppliers and contractors to get in touch to learn more about the benefits.”
Geikalo added: “As the world rebuilds following protracted pandemic disruption, countries in APAC are expected to continue their ambitious infrastructure plans in the coming years. MYCRANE will be well-placed to serve the local cranes and construction industries when we shortly begin operations in Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia.
Geikalo also added further: “In the meantime, we continue to explore ways to roll out our services in other key Asian markets such as China, Malaysia, and Vietnam.”
