Our customers in almost every market sector are experiencing increased requirements for broken case picking in their distribution & fulfillment operations. Depending on your business objectives, there are many ways to set up your operation to address the challenges this increased broken case picking demand creates. Our team of experts at Storage Solutions can help you determine the right way to address this challenge within your business.
Broken case picking (also referred to as split case picking, each picking or piece picking) involves the selection of individual units of the product as “eaches” or inner-packs to satisfy the order requirements. Repacking of this product into outbound cartons or shipping containers is typically required before shipment to the customer.
The picking and packing of broken-case items to fulfill orders in a distribution center may be developed in multiple ways. The methods, processes, and systems utilized should minimize the fulfillment costs and cycle time while maximizing accuracy and order throughput.
