Storage Carousels for Batch Picking Order Fulfillment
Distribution centers and hospitals need to store and distribute products as efficiently and quickly as possible. Distribution centers have different orders that need to be picked and shipped to customers while hospitals have medical products and supplies that need to be picked and delivered to different departments. Batch picking orders 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 efficient storage carousels to all types of businesses to use when batch picking orders in Lubbock, Midland-Odessa, Plainview, Del Rio, Big Spring, Eagle Pass, and throughout the state of Texas.

How Batch Picking Orders Using Storage Carousels Work
Batch picking orders is important for enhancing worker productivity and turnaround times. Studies show as much as 60% of a worker’s picking time is attributed to traveling to and from stored inventory locations. Batch picking using efficient storage carousels brings stored inventory to the operator for 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 picking for order fulfillment by minimizing walking distances and consolidating transactions.
efficient 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.
