How to make savings in large scale order fulfilment

posted in: workstations 0

Large scale order fulfilment requires a flexible working environment

This allows for workstations to be repurposed or changed over to suit packing and despatch, or returned item processing. There is generally a need for enough space to process orders without work areas being too large and causing inefficiency.

The integration of IT systems is required to collate information from the processed items. The task of collating information has to be carried out thoroughly and efficiently due to the nature of the returns process. Therefore other aids will often be required to bring down processing time. This moves away from a base standard workbench to something more fit for purpose.

For larger more complex systems a grouped approach is often used for a more Lean system requiring less movement from person processing.

Where there is a wide range of variables, a simple workbench is often woefully insufficient.  It may seem ideal cost-wise, however the wrong equipment will only show an initial cost saving and lead to a higher process cost – not a long term year on year return on investment.

What you require is a bespoke solution based on your company, process and application.
