MONTH NUMBER OF MOVES NUMBER OF LBS. MATERIAL HANDLING COST
January $100 6,000 $2,000
February $125 15,000 $3,090
March $175 7,800 $2,780
April $200 600 $1,990
May $500 29,000 $7,500
June $300 23,000 $5,300
July $250 17,000 $4,300
August $400 25,000 $6,300
September $475 12,000 $5,600
October $425 22,400 $6,240
