Technological developments in material handling equipment: a key market driver

Over the years, the advent of numerous technological developments in the field of material handling revolutionized the entire process. The introduction of advanced systems such as manufacturing execution systems (MES) and warehouse management systems (WMS) have replaced traditional isolated connectivity of material handling equipment by comprehensive interfaces.

The warehouse control system (WCS), a more advanced material handling control system, provides a single interface between higher level software and hardware. These technologies are bringing about a new era of material handling equipment automation to improve processes and reduce operational costs.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for unit operations research, "Another major trend in material handling equipment is the rising popularity of voice recognition systems. Operators are slowly becoming aware of the benefits of using hands-free communication systems and are being trained on the same. This will result in minimal operational errors, in turn resulting in increased productivity levels."
