The high price of material handling equipment hinders its adoption by many small and medium-scale organizations across the globe. However, the need to increase their material handling capabilities has forced end-users to look for different procurement channels. As there is high competition among vendors, some are trying to differentiate themselves from other vendors by providing innovative and value-added services; this includes offering equipment such as forklifts and other industrial trucks on a rent or lease basis. The availability of rent-based material handling equipment encourages end-users to use advanced material handling equipment with low investment.

End-users are able to make significant savings in the long run by switching from traditional material handling practices to the material handling system.
