Distribution centres and picking systems

Correct order-preparation methods affects not only the company’s efficiency, but also the level of service offered to customers. This is why picking systems have become an important tool in competition, especially in a modern context where it is necessary to focus on a range of performance factors, such as order accuracy, availability, speed and delivery precision.

Composition of the order involves grouping certain articles, materials and components prior to shipment in logistics centres or a specific processing phase in production cycles. For these operations, it is essential to be able to rely on an automated warehouse equipped with an efficient picking system. Picking refers to all operations involving handling of goods, whether picking or loading: these goods can be picked from shelving as a single unit or as a pallet, systematically monitoring all incoming and outgoing flows from the warehouse thanks to perfect integration of logistics and IT systems. This allows important inventory management, providing a general overview of the warehouse, which is constantly updated.

Cassioli offers several distribution centres and picking solutions created with different technologies, each of which compatible with particular needs and different production scenarios. Distribution centres and picking systems differ from one another in terms of performance and operating methodology.

For each distribution centre, a prior logical understanding of the design process is always necessary in relation to data defining the distribution context:

  • Main information on the item (Stock Keeping Unit): dimensions, type of load unit, weight, item per box, box per layer, layer per pallet, etc.)
  • Statistics on orders, order lines, seasonality of orders

CASSIOLI offers a range of picking systems, each compatible with a specific scenario. In some cases, the solution may involve joint adoption of different solutions.
