What is ‘materials handling?’
‘Materials handling’ refers to the process of moving goods, items, and materials in a storage area, such as a warehouse. In almost all instances, materials handling refers to the transportation of items over short distances. Usually via a forklift or something similar.
Materials handling includes:
- Storing and transporting goods stacked on pallets
- Storing and transporting items shipped as unit loads
In short materials handling is about managing goods, materials, assemblies and finished products. It involves storing them, protecting and controlling them throughout all stages of manufacturing. From the warehouse, to distribution, and disposal.
