Batch picking carts
Batch picking is a process of preparation of orders characterized by “groups of orders…whose objective is to minimize the time spent on repetitive actions of loading/extraction of the same location of product”. A single person (picker) moves through the warehouse and selects products to fill multiple orders in a single movement. Optimal batch picking management often requires a warehouse management system (WMS) or an order management system (OMS) to pre-order orders.
For example: all orders that require one or more products from the same stock (Stock Keeping Units SKUs) or all orders whose product (SKU) requires searching in close proximity to each other. After grouping them together, the system releases a batch of grouped orders.
BENEFITS OF THIS TECHNOLOGY
It is estimated that labour costs for order preparation can amount to 55 % of total operating costs and that transport from the collection point to the shipping area can cost 60-65%.
Easy to learn and use. Mobile Pick trolleys combine a variety of technologies and ensure fast and accurate placement during the picking process. These systems automate the collection of multiple orders simultaneously. It ensures that the quantity loaded/extracted is correct as well as its location. Mobile Pick trolleys can significantly increase the collection speed by up to 200%.
