East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/24/2014 -- The eighth issue of “Picking Perfection” (a weekly e-newsletter) to be released September 29, 2014 will address increasing productivity when picking more than one order at a time. In batch order picking, multiple orders are grouped into small batches. An order picker will pick all orders within the batch in one pass using a consolidated pick list. Usually, the picker will use a multi-tiered picking cart maintaining a separate tote or carton on the cart for each order. Companies often vary the batch sizes depending on the average picks per order or the cubic size of the items per order.
The upcoming newsletter will also discuss automating order picking systems. They are perceived by many as necessitating large investments.
Ultimately lower level technology investments and procedural picking improvements yield desired productivity improvements in warehouses.
Next week’s newsletter will address that with the development of technology and the increasing globalization, logistics is becoming a competitive area for companies. Companies that deliver quickly and accurately gain competitive advantages in the market and gain market share.
Each week the newsletter will look at best picking practices.
