Materials Handling Engineering Division


The Materials Handling Engineering Division (MHED) concentrates on systems engineering methods that integrate control technology, information technology, and material transport equipment to provide efficient, safe and economical material handling.

Dear MHED Members:

The mission and primary interest of the Materials Handling Engineering Division is to identify and communicate information about the latest developments in material handling equipment and practices in all areas of interest to MHED members.

Over the last decade material handling has undergone tremendous changes. To reflect these changes MHED is in the process of a yearlong revitalization effort. As a part of this effort we will be reaching out to members like you to find out how MHED can play an important role in your profession and career. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to your support and participation.
