Order Picking Systems
Order picking is a critical process in warehouse operations that involves selecting and gathering products from storage to fulfill customer orders.
An efficient automated warehouse picking system for pallets, totes, cartons, and boxes enables savings in costs and storage space in the warehouse. You will be able to make faster deliveries with fewer errors and happier customers. The wrong picking system can turn your whole operation into chaos.
With warehouse order picking systems, there are four main picking methods commonly used in warehouses today. Single order picking, batch picking, zone picking, and wave picking. Automated warehouse picking systems are vast but include mobile scanning-based picking, voice-based picking, and pick-to-light systems.
