In a very real sense, order picking is the heart of distribution center management.
Companies really don’t build “warehouses” any more to store product, they build
distribution centers to efficiently meet customer demand – and order picking is where the rubber meets the road. All the other DC tasks are primarily there to support the order picking process.

On this page, we provide a variety of resources to help you understand and successfully implement an Advanced Order Picking System in your distribution environment.
