In fact, Pick to Cart is a mobile version of Sort to Light. Everything revolves round a mobile unit, connected via the RF network, with which items can be placed directly in the correct shipping box from the pick location. Pick, sort and pack cleverly implemented in one solution.
Pick to Cart is especially suited for warehouses where the efficiency of order picking can be increased by combining orders in batches. Walking distances are minimized by picking multiple orders in one go. The major advantage of Pick to Cart is that the time-consuming consolidation step following batch picking is no longer necessary.
The Pick to Cart system consists of a mobile unit, equipped with several locations, each with its own Pick to Light display. The operator takes the ‘cart’ with him into the warehouse. The employee is led to the storage location via the screen on the Pick to Cart unit. After scanning the barcode of the pick location or the item, the displays on the cart indicate for which customer the items need picking.
Pick and Pack to Cart
Cart picking is a great technique where shipping boxes can placed directly into the carts location. That way, you can make optimal use of the Pick to Cart system and no separate packing process is necessary. Once the order picking process is complete, all you have to do is include the packing slip and close the box.
