The rental sector is playing an increasingly important role in materials handling. Each week, we tend to include news of a large equipment order by a rental operator and it's clear that these businesses are buying up big. And that implies that they are doing a brisk trade in hiring out their products.
This week, we report on one of the benefits of this growing endeavour, sharing some European research which indicates that the efficient use of hire equipment actually helps reduce environmental impacts.
So, hiring is often cheaper than buying, it allows businesses to quickly scale up and down as needed - and it's helping the planet. And besides all that, it's proving to be a profitable enterprise for the hire sector. Now, that's a real win-win-win situation!
