Transport and Handling

The handling which generally comes after transport by land, sea and air means the action of handling, moving goods, packages or documents in a place of production or storage such as a warehouse, a factory, a store, an office, etc … We also speak of lifting and sometimes levageurs to designate the activities and trades of this sector.

Certain production sectors with a high labor rate, for example such as agriculture or the wood industry, employ low-skilled manual workers. These employees, called handlers or laborers, perform manual tasks that do not require specific technical knowledge. However, they are essential, most often because they cannot be replaced by machines either because of the extraordinary plasticity of the human body, or because their work requires an important quality of attention.
