Material handling is the movement, protection, storage and control of materials and products throughout manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, consumption and disposal. As a process, material handling incorporates a wide range of manual, semi-automated and automated equipment and systems that support logistics and make the whole chain works.
The company’s material handling system and processes are put in place to improve customer service, reduce inventory, shorten delivery time, and lower overall handling costs in manufacturing, distribution and transportation.
Standardization of equipment and methods of handling helps cutting down on the cost of handling material by simplifying maintenance, repair and storage aspects. Choosing a handling method is based on the volume of material involved. Planning in advance is another aspect of material handling. Such planning involves taking into account safety hazards, the possibility of combining loads, any physical or legal restrictions to moving the load, and protecting the material against breakage.
