What is goods-to-man?

The "goods-to-man" picking method is dynamic, semi-automated or fully automated picking. The order picker stands directly at the pick point, thus eliminating long travel times. With the help of a rack conveyor, the goods to be picked are brought from a usually computer-controlled warehouse to the picker. By eliminating the need to walk and search for the various items, a lot of time can be saved. Transport time is also shortened by fast and fully automatic conveying equipment.

Advantages of goods-to-man picking:

  • Less susceptibility to errors
  • Lower investment costs
  • Independent of machine failure
  • High flexibility due to personnel deployment
  • High picking performance with path time optimization
