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.
Material handling equipment is classified into four main categories: Transport, Positioning, Unit load, and Storage. There are four key ways in which material handling equipment can improve an operation:
- Reduce employee exertion by decreasing the physical stress on employees.
- Speed up the handling processes.
- Keep materials and people safe.
- Optimise space.
