Order fulfilment is the single most important sorting and shipping process in an intralogistics or distribution centre. No matter whether it is a manual or automated process. When operated manually, the picker staff aim to fulfil the order in the shortest possible time, ensuring that no mistakes are made during this process.
PTG (Person to Goods) is the typical picking process. The picker can access the instructions from the central ERP/WMS that also runs on Datalogic’s range of powerful PDT or PDA units. This ensures the goods are picked in the correct sequence within the warehouse, without any errors. On the other hand, when the order is managed automatically, the sorting process is a result of the data being automatically captured by a Datalogic stationary industrial scanner mounted directly on a cross-belt, shoe sorter, or similar material handling systems.
Datalogic’s range of handheld scanners and mobile computers complement the intralogistics process by ensuring that nothing is ever missed, guaranteeing end-to-end supply chain visibility and full traceability of sorting and shipping applications.
