5 factors affecting materials handling in the chemical supply chain

December 13, 2019

Many external factors affecting materials handling operations in the chemical supply chain are not immediately obvious. Mark Nailer, Industry Manager for Hyster Europe discusses some of the unexpected, but very important, industry trends that chemical handling applications should consider. Businesses are utilising materials handling equipment at many different stages of the chemical supply chain, from raw materials transport, to dosing during manufacturing and the storage and distribution of finished goods, such as agrichemicals, paints and food additives. While these applications rely on Hyster® lift trucks for efficiency, accuracy and a low cost of ownership, they are also looking for support in overcoming other key challenges that affect the chemical industry.
