Order picking – also known as order fulfilment – is the process of retrieving products from storage in order to meet a specific customer demand. Processing orders rapidly and accurately has a direct impact on customer satisfaction.

Selecting the best order-picking solution depends on the requirements of individual operations and products. Vanderlande’s experience and expertise in designing and implementing these systems takes into consideration such criteria as volume and item velocity.

Integrated order-picking solutions ensure each product is picked via the most suitable method. Attention will also be given to whether they will handle individual items, full cases or pallets. Vanderlande has already supplied these solutions to companies such as Amazon and Arrow Electronics.

Automated order-picking systems can:

  • increase productivity by up to 1,000 lines per man hour
  • improve picking accuracy by up to 99.99%
  • help to deliver higher customer service levels
  • optimise space utilisation by up to 40% (compared to conventional warehouses).
