This approach of order picking is suitable for applications that require full case picking. In this approach, a central conveyor line travels through each and every inventory zone.
Whenever a wave of orders is run, the pickers are notified about the locations in their zones from where a full case has to be picked (This notification could either be done via handheld RF Guns, Pick to Light or Voice Pick technology). The Pickers picks the Cases from the notified location and put it directly on the Zone Conveyor.
The Conveyor System then transports the Cases out of the inventory locations and identifies individual boxes via an automated barcode scan to link the case with its parent order.
These cases are then automatically labelled with the shipping label and sorted out for dispatch via one of the Falcon Dispatch Sorters.
