Transporting heavy-weight materials is a challenge in any warehouse. The anxiety of minimizing downtime, preventing injuries and handling a high volume of materials becomes overwhelming and meeting production standards is seemingly impossible. Often times, work pace is completely dictated by the use of machinery. However, in many warehouses, the use of inadequate or obsolete material handling equipment causes productivity to falter under heavy loads.
Nearly 20% of material movers work in fast-paced warehouses where maximum efficiency is a necessity. Handling materials with improper equipment can be unsafe, time consuming and profit robbing. And while most material handling equipment is designed to cater to general material handling needs, choosing the right equipment for more specific needs can make the difference between productivity and ineffectiveness.
