A pick module is a multi-level warehousing storage system that integrates a number of storage mediums, including carton flow, pallet flow, push-back and shelving with conveyor systems to create a highly productive order picking solution. By consolidating picking activity and reducing travel time, pick modules save space while improving pick rates and lowering labor costs.
A well-designed system provides an orderly, connected module where technology is combined with conveyor and sortation systems to move the product from in-processing through order fulfillment. Full pallets transferred from push-back, pallet flow, or pallet rack reserve storage are broken down into cartons and pieces. Those items are then loaded into specially designed pick-areas to complete order fulfillment. Apex Companies will design a custom system to fit your unique inventory, space and budgetary considerations.
