Material handling systems are playing an ever increasing role in different industries. As a result of such systems, transportation of heavy objects from one place to another can be facilitated in a short time while reducing human efforts drastically at the same time. This paper suggests the use of a material handling system to make a tedious task much easier. The task here is to load and unload different types of two wheelers (such as motorbikes and mopeds) in a multi-storeyed trailer used for their transportation. In India at least, this task is traditionally performed by the workers when a new set of vehicles is to be transported. A lot of effort is required by these workers to load the vehicle into the trailers. This is even more tiring when the bikes are to be loaded on the 2nd floor of the trailer. The system developed in this player helps in tackling this problem to a great extent. The system is inspired by escalators used to reduce human effort in climbing steps.
