THIS MONTH’S FEATURE: Looking for Ways to Increase Order Throughput? Add Pack-IT to Your Ship-IT System

You can speed up order picking and packing, eliminate packing errors, and prevent bottlenecks in your shipping line by adding ADSI’s Pack-IT and Ship-IT software tools to your packing stations. Here’s how it works:

  1. Orders are downloaded into the Pack-IT screen, to guide the employee’s work.
  2. The employee uses a barcode scanner to verify item picking and packing.
  3. Pack-IT tracks items as the employee packs and alerts them if an error occurs.
  4. Once the order is picked, the employee closes it out and processes it for shipping.

Your packing stations become shipping stations, enabling you process shipments from multiple points in the warehouse. This is a great way to avoid bottlenecks that can occur at the end of the shipping line.

One ADSI customer, Ben Huffman VP of Operations for Legendary Whitetails, has converted 12 packing stations into integrated pack/ship stations and likes the redundancy he’s gained.

“Before, we relied on two dedicated manifesting stations to handle the shipping. If one goes down, our productivity is severely compromised,” he said, “Now, with the integrated Pack-IT/Ship-IT stations, we don’t have to worry about it.”
