The operation uses two techniques in its order assembly processes: Pick-to-Light for fast moving SKU’s and barcode scanning for the slow moving SKU’s.
Pcdata, the supplier of the system, combined both methods to create a completely integrated and highly optimized order picking solution. Thanks to this system, Ici Paris XL is now in full control of the productivity and quality of their order picking operation.
