Goods-to-Person Picking

Maximise Picker Efficiency with over 1,000 Picks per Hour

Dematic Goods-to-Person Picking solutions deliver items directly to pick stations, eliminating non-value added time needed for operators to search for items. These solutions address the most challenging fulfilment needs by combining high-density, secure storage with the high-speed and accuracy of directed picking. Dematic Goods-to-Person Picking solutions offer 100% golden-zone ergonomic picking to ensure peak operator performance throughout their entire shift.

Dematic iQ software optimises all aspects of fulfilment operation, including direct picking into right-sized shipping containers to reduce cycle times, labour costs, and shipping/transportation costs.

Dematic Goods-to-Person Picking solutions are specifically designed for high demand applications, including retail store replenishment, direct-to-customer order fulfilment,  business-to-business fulfilment, and just-in-time delivery of parts in manufacturing. 

How Goods-to-Person Picking Works

  1. Inventory is received at decanting workstations where operators scan bar codes and transfer items into inventory totes.
  2. Inventory totes are conveyed and automatically stored in the high-density storage buffer.
  3. When needed, inventory totes are retrieved and directed to picking stations.
  4. Lights and graphical instructions direct operators to pick the required items from the inventory totes and place them into order containers.
  5. When an order container is complete, it is automatically routed to the packing area.
  6. Inventory totes return to the high-density storage buffer.
