Multitasking: parallel picking and consolidated delivery.

Here a part there a part and somehow the picking procedure still doesn't seem to run and work very efficiently. Most companies have a large number of items of various sizes in their warehouse. And it is not uncommon for the warehouse complex to be divided into different areas where the individual stocks are stored. In order to work efficiently and quickly, parallelization is often used. But in many cases, the picking containers and shipping packaging are already quite different. In contrast, customers want as few packages as possible. In addition, when shipping by parcel service or freight forwarder, optimal packaging has a positive effect on the associated costs. For key customers, additional processes and supplementary controls are desired. A whole host of different requirements that have to be taken into account when processing orders in the warehouse.

Order merging is no problem with our SuPCIS-L8 warehouse management software. Due to the complete integration into the warehouse management system SuPCIS-L8 it is possible that certain orders are stored in a buffer warehouse until the order is complete. The employees at the packing station have a complete overview of this area and thus have the possibility to monitor the movement of goods. The status of individual orders can be viewed at any time via the dashboard of the SuPCIS-L8 warehouse management software. In this way, employees can also see when orders have been completely picked. Subsequently, all parts of the order can be taken from the buffer storage and packed into as few packages as possible.

‍Bymerging orders, incoming orders are processed in the warehouse in a timely manner with shorter travel times and less throughput time per order. This not only ensures increased efficiency when picking orders, but also reduces the physical strain on employees and makes warehouse processes more efficient overall.
