Warehouses that perform well and are efficient and rise in the competitive market. The ability to take the order, prioritize it, hand it over to the workers, pick and pack the items, and shipping it is crucial to a warehouse’s success. An efficient system of pick and pack service involves a workforce that is on the toes at all times, reduced warehouse waste, and the goods are delivered to the customers on life.
Pick and Pack Process
The pick and Pack process involves several stages. Firstly, the order comes in through the order management system, and the warehouse of the fulfillment center system takes out a pick ticket for the order. Then, the pick tickets are handed over to the employees, who prioritize the order based on the client and the delivery deadline of the order because some customers may have paid for express delivery.
Once the orders have been processed based on their priority, it is sent to the pick team. The pick team’s job is to move around the warehouse and gather teams as stated in the order receipt. The picking team may carry the items in a cart. Having a pick cart allows workers to gather the products all at once instead of taking each item one by one. This, the workers can pick even more than one order and deliver a large volume of packages all at once. This ensures that the workers do not have to tire themselves again and against and promotes a healthy work environment.
Once the worker has found the items, he scans them to the system, is updated that an item has been taken, and reports the number of items that are left in the inventory. This also avoids any loss or theft that may have a chance of occurring in the warehouse. Once the items have been scanned, they are handed over to the packing team.
The packing process scans every item as they pack so the order can contain all items listed. Once all items are ready and sealed, the workers select an appropriate box, put the order code on the box, and print a packing slip. Once the items are packed into the boxes and the printed slips are attached, the order is ready for shipment.
