Pcdata USA Pick to Light Solution Reduced Errors in Six Months at 3PL
East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/26/2014 -- Pcdata USA set up a pick-to-light system for TopPak Fulfillment Services, a third party logics company, which had a picking area in which only 60 articles were held. These articles represented a massive 75 percent of the total daily order lines of only 66 feet in length for fast movers. With PCdata USA pick-to-light solution, paper based picking ended up in 10 percent of all orders having a mistake. The improved pick-to-light system had no errors in the past 6 months.
Antonio Rodrigues, a senior manager at Pcdata, based in East Granby, Connecticut, suggested, "One size fits all certainly does not apply to getting the highest productivity out of a warehouse operation. Different technologies are better-suited depending on the SKUs order frequency and value." More is not better in the picking world. All the bells and whistles of costly complex solutions completely miss the actual value, picking the right product, at the right place, at the right time.
