Materials handling is an integral part of the materijals flow in logistics systems that incorporates activities related to the physical supply of materials in an organization. Specifically, handling of materials means the administration of the raw materials, intermediate products, packaging materials and supplies in the production facilities. Material handling is not directly related to consumers, but the extent to which raw materials, materials and semiproducts will be available for production determines the availability of finished products to consumers. The foregoing means that the decisions made in this part of the logistics system have direct effects on the level of customer service, which affects the competitiveness of the firm and the level of profit made in the market. Without efficient and effective management of the internal flow of materials, the manufacturing process cannot produce the products at the desired price and place for consumers. Having regard to the foregoing, the paper will provide a theoretical overview of material handling, particulary the activities incorporated in this process, as well as systems MRP, ERP, DRP, bar code technology and RFID technology whitch are important for succesful materials handling.
