viastore SYSTEMS Waveless Warehouse Picking Best for Distribution Center
Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/21/2016 -- viastore SYSTEMS adopted new technology because it presents a better way of getting things done. The horse and buggy gave way to the car because of speed and convenience. The smart phone eclipsed feature phones because consumers could have richer apps and a connected experience.
Similarly in business, new technology must bring tangible benefits to really catch on. A new buzzword won't cut it without bottom line benefits, especially in the cost conscious world of logistics. Within warehouses and distribution centers (DCs) one buzzword that has been around for a few years is "waveless" picking. While waveless operations have been adopted by a few U.S. companies, and are much more commonplace in Europe, the characteristics of waveless picking, its benefits, and its supporting elements, are far from well understood.
But if the distribution center is beset by bottlenecks, poorly coordinated islands of automation, and is struggling with the tighter order priorities common to multichannel fulfillment, then it may be time to learn more about waveless picking and what it can do for your bottom line.
