Storage Carousels for Batch Picking in San Antonio
Distribution centers and large hospitals have something in common, they each need to store and distribute items as efficiently and quickly as possible. Distribution centers have different products that need to be picked and shipped to customers while large hospitals have medical products and supplies that need to be picked and delivered to different departments. Batch picking is one of the most efficient ways to accomplish the task of efficient order fulfillment for distribution centers and hospitals. Storage Carousels aid the process by bringing stored items directly to the operator picking and managing the fulfillment of orders. We provide Storage Carousels for batch picking to all types of businesses in San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Harlingen, McAllen, Brownsville, and throughout the Texas Rio Grande Valley to use when batch order picking for packaging.

How Batch Picking for Efficient Order Fulfillment Works
Batch picking is important for enhancing worker productivity and order turnaround times. Studies show as much as 60% of a worker’s picking time is attributed to traveling to and from stored product locations. Batch picking using storage carousels brings stored parts to the operator for efficient order fulfillment. Once products are delivered to the operator, products for several orders are fulfilled at one time to streamline order processing. Storage carousels optimize batch picking for efficient order fulfillment by minimizing walking distances and consolidating order fulfillment transactions.
Batch Picking With Storage Carousels
Batch picking with storage carousels are typically designed so that one operator manages two to three storage carousels, also called a pod, at a time. One of the storage carousels’ biggest benefits is that requested products are brought directly to the operator via the shortest and fastest path. The computerized inventory management software organizes batches of orders so that the storage carousel is always one step ahead of the operator, moving and queuing up the next picking location. This eliminates wasted time and provides efficient order fulfillment.
Storage carousels can be ordered with pick-to-light technology that points to the exact bin location of the stored item and displays the number of items to be picked. In addition, storage carousels save floor space compared to traditional static shelving. With a storage carousel, you can expect to save anywhere from 40 to 80 percent of floor space in your storage and picking area depending on the type you choose.
