Picking is the term referring to the order fulfillment process within a warehouse or distribution center.
This involves gathering the individual products required to fulfill a specific order. Employees, often equipped with scanning devices or tracking technologies, navigate through the stock aisles to locate the requested items, gather them, and appropriately package them.
Picking can be carried out through various methods such as piece picking, batch picking, or wave picking. Efficient execution of picking is crucial to ensuring order accuracy and customer satisfaction while minimizing errors and processing delays.
