FLOOW2 is a recently-launched collaborative consumption website in the style of Zilok or Ecomodo , but with a difference. FLOOW2 specialises in the short-term leasing of heavy machinery used in construction, mining, agriculture and forestry.
Little use is made by companies of equipment of fellow companies. Via FLOOW2, companies can rent equipment; from excavators to cranes, threshers to tractors, easily from others and lower their costs. They can also rent out their own equipment and generate a higher return on their investment. Renting can be done with or without crew.
I noticed that the client was continually buying new equipment while all the time the same thing was sitting idle a few miles away. Raw materials were being wasted but, in particular, company funds. It came to me that supply and demand could be brought together in a simple and accessible way by using an internet platform.” Others in this field of work confirm that equipment is available in abundance: sometimes at the wrong moment, often in the wrong place. The result is that twice the amount of equipment actually needed to do the work exists worldwide.
