What is Material Handling Equipment?

Material handling equipment ensures that productivity, safety, and efficiency are top priorities in a production or warehouse setting. Its primary functions are movement, storage, control and protection of materials, goods and products.

It is classified into four main categories: Transport, Positioning, Unit load, and Storage. There are four key ways in which this type of equipment can improve an operation:

  1. Reduce employee exertion by decreasing the physical stress on employees.
  2. Speed up the handling processes.
  3. Keep materials and people safe.
  4. Optimise space.
