Picking process

In a pick - process, pick orders are transmitted to workers in the form of pick lists or electronically. The subsequent process is divided into various sub-processes. The central basic services include

  • their transfer into containers, onto conveyor lines or a transport vehicle as well as
  • the merging of order quantities.

  • Default transport information
  • Transport of the goods to the staging point
  • Provision of the goods
  • Movement of the picker to the staging area
  • Presetting of the extraction information
  • Removal of the articles by the picker
  • Withdrawal delivery
  • Acknowledgement of the withdrawal process
  • Transport of the collection unit(s) to the dispenser
  • Specifying the transport information for the opened supply unit(s)
  • Transport of the opened supply units

Possible additional services in the course of order picking are labeling, price marking and packing, the compilation of containers as well as the marking and labeling of shipping units.
