The Pick and Pack Process
Pick and pack distribution is a process where goods are selected from shipments and individually re-packaged for distribution to a relevant destination.
The warehouse receives shipment of a product. The shipment is stored in the warehouse and entered into an inventory management system.
Warehouses have different zones according to the size of items (full-pallet, case, and individual) and the required storage environment.
Often referred to as omnichannel fullfilment the “picking and packing” process occurs when items are pulled from these various locations and packaged together according to customer specific instructions. The process is monitored to ensure efficiency and to handle desired changes in operational needs.
The final packaged product is then delivered to its destination, and the client receives a confirmation of delivery along with updated inventory information.
Benefits of Omnichannel Fulfillment
Pick and pack distribution is efficient and time-saving. The process eliminates the “middle-man” often required when goods must be collected from different storage facilities and then sent somewhere else to be packaged and labeled. Pick and pack distribution allows everything to be done in one place.
Pick and pack distribution is cost-effective. The process is meant to handle varying sizes of orders, so minimum order charges usually do not apply.
Short Turnaround Time
Highly organized management and effective handling techniques allow shipments to reach destinations quickly.
