Real-time functionalities bring visibility into workflow processes and activities allowing better management decisions. The system manages processes for picking, sorting after zone picking, packing and optionally returns. The management view gives detailed information throughout the processes which makes it possible to keep close control of the operation and allows improved communication between management and the users.
At the same time the popularity of dark store picking is declining, as on-line stores are moving towards multi-channel logistics. Picking inside the store provides for a more agile operation. Picking directly from the shop floor also reduces the need for maintaining large warehouse premises.
When an online order is received, Abakus platform analyses the order content and splits it into the picking rows based on the areas of the locations of the items. This way multiple pickers can pick simultaneously different rows of same order in different areas speeding up the total handling time. Once all the items of particular area are picked they are transferred to the sorting and packing areas to be combined into the original order and finally shipped out in a single shipment.
Order split for picking
