Trolley Picking

Improve despatch rates in fast moving operations by picking multiple orders at once

Improving picking productivity with Trolley Picking

In high volume, fast moving operations where the items to be picked are relatively small, it is often more productive to pick onto trolleys or into totes. Furthermore, as a majority of pickers' time is spent walking between locations, efficiency can be further improved by picking multiple orders simultaneously in multiple locations rather than picking serially.

Improving picking efficiencies is vital to maintain service levels, no matter how challenging. Consumer demands continue to reduce the time between placing an order and it being delivered, next day is commonplace and same day is growing rapidly.

Proteus WMS supports multi-order, multi-location trolley picking, which helps drive operational gains and increases productivity for warehouse operators. Each trolley and tote can be uniquely identified and different sizes of trolley can be set up. The number of locations and capacity can be specified to determine how many orders can be picked with each trolley. You can also define which locations are suitable for trolley picking.
