East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/09/2014 -- The Picking Perfection newsletter reported the cost of a mis-pick is expensive for manufacturers. Reshipping costs alone consume any profitability in the initial B2C (Business to Consumer) omni-channel order. Implementing automated storage and retrieval equipment--such as horizontal carousels, vertical carousels, and vertical lift modules--multiple areas of a manufacturing or distribution facility will generate savings in inventory accessibility, floor space, time, improved ergonomics, and better accuracy. Ultimately some of the simple and least expensive solutions to ensure perfect and profitable picks are Pick-to-light (PTL) solutions. The modular, flexible, easily deployed (and redeployed for seasonal picks) PTL solutions have among the most rapid ROI of any materials handling technologies.
