How Batch Picking for Efficient Order Fulfillment Works
Batch picking is essential for enhancing order fulfillment productivity and turnaround times. Studies show as much as 60% of a worker's picking time is credited to wondering to and from stored product locations. Batch picking using storage carousels brings stored products to the operator for efficient order fulfillment. Once products are delivered to the operator, several orders are batched together for picking at one time to streamline order processing. Storage carousels optimize batch picking for efficient order fulfillment by reducing time spent traveling and combining order fulfillment transactions.
Batch Picking With Storage Carousels
Batch picking with storage carousels are typically designed so that one person manages two to three storage carousels, called pods, at a time. One of the storage carousels’ biggest paybacks is that products are brought directly to the picking operator via the quickest route. The computerized inventory management software organizes batches of orders so that the storage carousel always moving and queuing up the next picking location. The storage carousels eliminate wasted time and provides efficient order fulfillment.
Storage carousels can be prearranged with pick-to-light technology that visually points to the bin location to pick from and shows the number of items to be picked. In addition, storage carousels reduce floor space usage compared to conventional stationary shelving. With a storage carousel, you can anticipate to save anywhere from 40 to 80 percent of floor space in your storage area.
