Material Handling encompasses all the processes that exist to move material in short distances within a designated area. Material Handling differentiates throughout every individual business and even more throughout each individual sector. For instance, Manufacturing has a different goal when moving material than a Distribution Center would.

Material handling must start from the moment the material (or product) arrives at a location, follow it throughout its process and stay with it until it finishes its purpose and exits. Material Handling has to be flexible. From more than just the basic movement of the material, material handling includes planning, protection, distribution and production all while keeping specific attention to flow, inventory, storage, control, and timing.

A main function within material handling is to choose the best material handling equipment that will create a custom solutions such as cart delivery that improve the timing, throughput and overall quality of a company’s material handling processes. Most companies aspire for efficient and effective material handling through the use of customized equipment.
