Gripping time

Gripping time: a factor for picking efficiency

Time is money, especially in logistics and the handling of goods and merchandise. One aspect of order picking that can be considered separately is the picking time. It is defined as the time for picking the item, i.e. removing and placing the item in the picking container. Alternative terms for the picking time include picking time or removal time.

Important: Depending on the type of shelving, the nature of the goods and factors such as the height of the storage location, etc., the picking time can vary considerably. Electronic goods, for example, require special protective measures, and the same applies to the food industry. Nevertheless, there are empirical values or time ranges that allow a statement to be made as to whether a gripping time is "OK", "too long" or "too short".
