No matter what type of industry you are in and what your product is, there is one thing you have in common with every other business in the world. Your product must be physically moved (often several times) throughout the process of its creation and distribution, and eventually ending up in the hands of the consumer. Basically, without the material handling industry, we wouldn’t have the thriving system of commerce that we have.
There are employees responsible for materials handling within almost every business. In order to move supplies, materials, and goods throughout the job site or manufacturing process, employees work with lifting slings and rigging equipment.
