Successfully fulfilling a customer’s order is the goal of any 3PL, warehouse or distribution center, and fast and impeccable pallet and bulked item order picking is essential to reaching it. While the practice of order picking sounds rather simple, errors represent a significant portion of operational costs. Incorrect order fulfillment results in warehouses managing returns, fulfilling new orders, and handling dissatisfied customers. Suffice it to say, if a facility does not have a flawless pallet or bulked item order picking process, they will lose money on every wrong order.

These improvements have also been instrumental in reducing picking headcount and lowering operational costs, while improving the speed and accuracy of order fulfillment.
The promise of a warehouse management system is to improve inventory tracking, picking and put-away processes. When order pickers embark on picking missions, the picklist starts with the WMS order manifest. However, without a closed-loop verification process there is no certainty that the right products and quantities are selected. Vimaan provides such a closed loop process with our manifest verification for palleted or bulked item order picking, learn more about how computer vision supports manifest pick verification.
Inventory accuracy is a challenge in almost every warehouse we walk into, and the reasons behind the inaccuracies vary. Understanding the truth behind your inventory involves not just cycle counting of stored inventory but also accurate tracking of inventory movement and reconciling it in near real time against your WMS.
