Handler has different meanings in many contexts- in competitive sports it means a trainer, in programming it specifies a routine that deals with a specific situation or type of data, in the CIA, FBI, etc. it means an agent's manager, and in the airport- a baggage handler... puts your bags on a little conveyor belt.

Generically, it means a person or thing which deals with a specific subdomain of interest.
