Picking cart scanning

Table of contents


The purpose of the picking cart scanning (also known as "pick order scanning" and "batch pick scanning") is to prepare orders for shipping. The difference between a picking cart scanning flow and a normal outbound scanning flow, is that the picking cart scanning one prepares multiple orders at the same time. This requires some sort of picking cart with multiple labeled bins.

The standard work flow is to first prepare the orders to be picked in the order list in the system. The items which are to be picked are tied ("allocated") to the orders. Each order is also assigned a specific bin in the picking cart. After that, the orders can be processed in the hand-held unit. Whenever you scan an article, it is removed from stock. Progress can be easily monitored from the system. When all goods have been scanned, the order statuses are updated.

The following information can be displayed in the hand-held unit:
