Diverse range of picking solutions

Picking is the central function of warehouse logistics. A vast number of options spans the range between fully automated and manual picking systems.

Using our goods-to-person solutions, you can significantly enhance the efficiency of your warehouse.


Manual picking: the person-to-goods principle

Manual picking represents the most common approach to order assembly in warehouses and distribution centers. These solutions are based on the person-to-goods principle, where the picker accesses goods stored in fixed locations

We design systems which include pick by voice, RF picking and and Pick by Light, in which employees receive the relevant picking information via signal lamps and displays. This system guides employees to the correct picking location and indicates the quantity of the goods to pick.

We offer you an extensive range of modular solutions:

  • E-Pick and pick@work

  • Pick by Light and Put to Light

  • Pick by Voice

  • Radio frequency picking (RF picking)

  • LogiMat® vertical storage lifts

Humans remain an essential and economical factor when it comes to performing picking activities due to their perception and decision-making abilities.
