Case picking is a labour intensive and costly function in warehouses and distribution centres. With decades of experience, Dematic has developed numerous order fulfilment strategies that provide fast, accurate and cost-effective case picking solutions.
Dematic case picking solutions vary from simple entry level technologies that help pickers improve productivity and throughput, through to automated systems which can significantly reduce, or even completely eliminate the need for manual labour.
Using real-time, pull-based optimisation software, these solutions offer the most sophisticated planning, execution and decision-support strategies available in the market today.
Technologies to improve manual case picking productivity, accuracy and throughput include:
For higher volume case picking applications, walk-pick-to-conveyor modules with pallet and case flow racks incorporating Voice, RF or PTL technologies enable very high productivity rates to be achieved.
Fully automated case picking solutions including Miniload, Multishuttle and robotic picking systems can deliver consistent, reliable, very high picking rates around the clock.
Key business benefits include:
- Increased productivity
- Reduced labour costs
- Faster order fulfilment
- Improved order accuracy
- Better stock rotation
