Order picking made easy - can't be done? Yes it can!

How do I pick an order for dispatch - and do it easily, quickly and efficiently? These are questions that every company has probably asked itself at some point when it comes to processing incoming orders in the warehouse in a timely manner. The travel times between picking and packing often take up an enormous amount of time, which must be reduced as much as possible. After all, the efficiency of the logistical processes in the warehouse often determines the success of a company. In short: there is no way around an intelligent picking strategy in the warehouse!

The solution for efficient order picking? Our warehouse management system SuPCIS-L8! Our flexible and powerful modules make it possible to select intelligent picking strategies according to requirements and to optimise the routes in the warehouse many times over. At our customer Moster, we have already been able to design a process with the help of SuPCIS-L8 that enables lightning-fast yet efficient order picking: the high-bay warehouse offers the possibility of storing larger items and long goods in separate areas. These items are picked in a route-optimised manner with high-speed vehicles and directly provided with a shipping label during order picking by means of mobile printers. In the shelving warehouse, picking is also optimised in terms of route and is carried out across all orders using the pick & pack method. Here, too, the warehouse management system optimises the processes with an intelligent logic. The special feature: the shipping volume is already calculated by SUPCIS-L8 before the picking process and the picking trolley is equipped with the corresponding shipping containers. The employee picks directly into the shipping containers - so there is no need to repack at the packing stations, but the package can be directly prepared for shipping. With these lean processes, time and effort per order can be saved enormously.
