viastore Systems Whitepaper Addresses Wave Picking Not Best for Distribution Centers
Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/03/2016 -- viastore Systems, a leading material handling automation systems and software company, released a whitepaper titled, "The Waveless Warehouse: Why Wave Picking Might Not Be the Best for Your Distribution Center."
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 distribution centers are 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 the bottom line.
