Picking & Despatch Control
The picking and despatch control function ensures that:
- Product correctly matches the order
- Stock is picked in an optimum manner
- Stock is picked ‘oldest first’ where appropriate
- QC held product is not picked traceability details are maintained (batch numbers, serial numbers)
Our systems can control this operation in a paperless manner, where required, using radio data terminals. The system can allow for wave picking and bulk picking.
Where load/builder is not used then the facility is provided for orders to be released in a controlled manner from an order well.
The system can control picking and packing operations and picking to mixed pallets. Carton and/or pallet labels can be provided and content lists produced, both electronically and on paper.
Items can be picked and despatched in one operation or picked, staged and despatched. The despatch control process allows items to be scanned onto the despatch vehicle and validated. A load list or trailer manifest can be produced which can then form the basis of an advanced shipping note to be communicated, for example, via EDI.
