Transport Equipment Keeps Everything Moving Smoothly

by Valley Box Company on Wed, Feb 18, 2015

No manufacturing company can operate efficiently, safely and profitably without proper material handling equipment. Material handling is the movement, storage, control and protection of materials, goods and products throughout the process of manufacturing, distribution, consumption and disposal. Material handling equipment is the mechanical equipment used to increase output, control costs, and maximize productivity. 

There are many types of material handling equipment including:

  • Multi Use Systems
  • Positioning Equipment
  • Storage Equipment
  • Custom Fabricated Steel Fixtures
  • Transport Equipment

Transport equipment

Let's take a look at transporting equipment specifically. Transporting material handling fixtures are an invaluable tool used by manufacturing facilities large and small. This vast collection of equipment makes moving material from one location to another easy, safe, and fast. For instance a manufacturing facility will need transport equipment to move equipment between loading docks, storage areas, within multiple areas throughout large facilities, between buildings, and even between facilities.

Transport equipment comes in all shapes and sizes. Handy options ranging from open shelving to drawers are readily available. However, many manufacturing facilities find that only a custom material handling solution will do. Custom material handling solutions can be configured for specific parts or uses, better comfort, and ease of operation. Just a few types of transporting equipment include:

  • Dollies
  • Carts
  • Trucks
  • Service carts
  • Flat deck industrial cart
  • Tool and maintenance carts
  • Utility carts
  • Mobile storage cabinets
  • Moving devices
  • Ergonomic material handling carts
  • Easy access steel stock trucks
  • Platform trucks
  • Security cart and truck
  • Stock picker trucks

Whether you want to perform a major overhaul of your manufacturing process or simply refine it, adding transport or other material handling equipment can play a significant role in your success. Take a look at more transport equipment solutions here.
