Material Handling Equipment
Material handling is one of the key services that any 3rd party logistics provider offers.

Third-party logistics providers offering cargo handling services first and foremost require trained staff for carrying out operations properly without causing expensive mistakes.
Besides Forklifts; various Cargo Movement machines are required for the most effective handling of products inside a warehouse. Conveyor belts and Pulleys are extremely effective when carrying large and heavy cargo from one section of the warehouse to another in the fastest possible manner.
Some of the best logistics companies in the world have installed robotic drive units to make tasks efficient. These Robots help in picking, storing and bringing various SKU’s to the packing areas where manual labour tasks are undertaken. Some examples include Alibaba and Amazon.
As can be seen by the video; Conventional forklifts are being replaced by new high-tech robotics technology.
3rd party logistics providers use the best and modern technology for cargo handling appropriate to the Type of Cargo and the Way in which the storage is done. Cargo can be kept in different ways such as:
- Standard Palletized on Racks;
- Non-Standard Palletized on Ground;
- Non-Palletized Loose Cargo.
Selecting the best Equipment is essential to operating a safe, quick and efficient Warehouse.
