Material handling managers are an essential part of the supply chain. They are in charge of providing equipment, materials, and supplies by directing receiving, warehousing, and distribution services. They also look after the stock levels to cater to the needs of the business, ensuring that the inventory levels never run out of stock or become excessive. Therefore, a potential hire is expected to understand the intricacies of material planning management and should possess crucial technical skills and cognitive abilities needed to do the job.
