Where Picking Carts are Used
Picking Carts for Warehousing, Fulfillment, and Logistics
Picking carts are commonly used in order fulfillment and logistics warehouses. In these settings, SKUs are picked to carts and moved throughout the building to fulfill orders. This fulfillment model is often referred to as “pick to cart.” With this strategy, SKUs are picked from shelves and placed onto mobile picking carts. The products are then moved to packing areas where orders are prepared for delivery. Choosing the type of cart that meets your needs will depend on the weight, size, and shape of the SKUs being stored, as well as the frequency at which they are picked.
Picking Carts for Manufacturing
Picking carts are used in industrial environments where inventory replenishment and parts restocking are frequent tasks. Manufacturing facilities commonly use picking carts to replenish stock, check inventory levels, pick, and put away parts. The types of totes or objects being stored and picked should be considered when determining the picking carts that are best suited for your facility. Static and flow-through options, as well as heavy-duty and light-duty options are available. Mobile picking carts can be built-to-order in a number of configurations to meet the needs of a variety of applications.
