Goods-to-Person Picking Systems
Increase picks per hour, order accuracy, and fulfillment potential.
Goods-to-person picking systems are scalable methods of piece picking that allow users to pick orders efficiently, accurately, and quickly using technology mixed with a dense storage component.
In most goods-to-person picking systems, incoming products are placed into totes or trays and then stored in the high-density storage system. As orders come in, products are automatically retrieved and sent to a picker, who is at a workstation ready to combine the order and either add the products to a pallet or to a packing area. This process eliminates travel time, increases order accuracy, and improves productivity for your workers.
The benefits of goods-to-person picking systems include:
There are two common categories of goods-to-person picking systems: vertical lift modules (VLMs) and automatic storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS). VLMs are capable of delivering one or two trays at a time to the picking area and are often used to store and pick smaller cube, slower-moving items. ASRS systems come in a variety of forms, depending on the needs of the picking operations.
It’s no secret that labor challenges are affecting many companies. With the latest advancements in technology, labor issues don’t have to slow down your operation. In fact, the right combination of systems can set you up to run more efficiently, while also being less reliant on manual labor.
