Tip for reducing picking errors

Any company that has a warehouse and processes e-commerce orders will inevitably have its own logistics department. Picking is one of the main activities, which is hugely important for the economic success of the company.

But how accurate is the order-picking in your warehouse? In an ideal world, every single order that is packaged and shipped to a customer would be perfect. In reality, however, the situation is different. Picking errors can happen for various reasons. By tackling some of the most common picking errors, you can avoid unnecessary work, costs, and loss of customers.

  • Examples of picking errors:
  • Picking the wrong item, in addition to or instead of the correct item;
  • Incorrect quantity (too many or too few);
  • Failing to pick an item;
  • Picking an item that is unacceptable due to damage, incorrect labelling, or packaging.

By picking orders more efficiently, you can shorten lead times and deliver faster, as well as reduce error margins. So, it can also improve your bottom line!
