Automated Batch Picking Cart

The new Lightning Pick® Automated Batch Picking Cart offers major productivity gains (up to 40%) and nearly 100% order accuracy compared to paper-based picking or even operations already us¬ing some standalone form of pick automation (RF, Voice, Pick-to- Light). The Cart’s patented ‘Perpetual Batch’ software maximizes the ef¬ficiency of each walk pass through the warehouse. The advanced algorithm selects order combinations based on the Cart’s real-time physical start location, not from a single pre-determined order drop/new batch launch location. Perpetual Batch even adds single pick orders to moving carts so it maximiz¬es the productivity of every walk through the facility even though individual order containers from the original batch are being filled. The cart utilizes a combination of RF scanning, optional Voice commands and Put-to-Light sortation to make it ideal for eCommerce Fulfillment, Third Party Fulfillment (3PL), facilities that don’t have conveyor throughout all pick areas and operations with large SKU bases that have no clear velocity categorization.
