Picking accounts for almost 50% of a warehouse's labor costs. Streamline your batch picking process to minimize non-value-added activities.
What is Batch Picking?
Batch picking allows you to pick items for multiple orders simultaneously, improving efficiency by reducing the number of trips a Picker must take through the warehouse. ShipHero has two different batch picking methods: Single Item Batch and Multi-Item Batch.
How to Choose the Right Pick Method
Single Item Batch Picking organizes single-item orders into batches. It can be useful for high-volume sales or if you commonly receive requests for an individual SKU.
Multi Item Batch Picking allows Pickers to pick multiple orders with different quantities of products into unique totes. This process separates orders as you are picking, so you don't have to spend time sorting through products when preparing to pack and ship orders.
