Case Picking:

Automated Mixed Case Order Fulfillment

Rapid Fulfillment of Store-Ready Mixed Case Orders

Dematic Automated Mixed Case Order Fulfillment solutions dramatically reduce picking labor and rapidly build high-density, store-ready pallets and carts. Fully-automated or manual palletizing options handle a wide variety of packaging material and shapes without costly trays and tray handling systems.

The solutions are highly accurate and condensed to operate in a fraction of the warehouse space. 

Dematic iQ Optimize software manages the entire operation, including building high-density pallets that match store planograms and honor crushability and SKU mixing restrictions. Dematic Automated Mixed Case Order Fulfillment solutions operate in ambient, chilled, or freezer environments and can be added to existing brownfield or greenfield facilities. 

How Automated Mixed Case Order Fulfillment Works

  1. Product is stored in a high-density case/tote buffer system (Dematic Multishuttle®, Mini-Load AS/RS, or AutoStore)
  2. Cases/totes are retrieved and automatically transported to the manual or automatic palletizing station based on their predefined sequence on the shipping pallet.
  3. Cases are arranged on pallets by automatic palletizers or by operators at ergonomic palletizing stations.
  4. Pallets are wrapped as each layer completes to ensure stability.
  5. The finished pallet is labeled as required and is delivered to the shipping area.
