THE SPACE BETWEEN PICKING AND SHIPPING

In today’s e-commerce environment, the pack process is a common bottleneck between picking and shipping. Packing challenges include speed to beat carrier cutoff times, timely delivery to meet customer expectations, and incorrect or missing documentation.

Pack automation
  • 1. Order Picking

    This is where the order fulfillment process starts. New orders are retrieved from the shelves and placed in cartons.

  • 2. Card or Collateral Insert

    As open cartons move along in the process, often times marketing collateral is added to the order, for promotional purposes, either for a sale or maybe a loyalty program.

  • 3. Packslip Print/Fold/Insert

    Before the cartons are closed and sealed, the invoice is inserted. This can either be a small thermal packing slip, or it can be a full multi-page invoice, and other items such as assembly instructions or regulatory documents.

  • 4. Carton Closure & Seal

    Once the carton contains all the necessary items and documentation, it can be closed, either via a taper or a case erector that also adds padding.

  • 5. Shipping

    After closure, the carton is ready to be shipped. It can be dimensioned, weighed, a shipping label can be manifested, printed and applied, and verified for accuracy.

  • 6. Sortation

    Once the shipping label is applied, it can be sorted either via carrier, shipping speed, weight, or by any other means of organizing outgoing shipments.
