What is a Pick Module?

July 18, 2022

What is a pick module?

A pick module is not the name for a single piece of equipment but rather for an entire system made up of multiple pieces of equipment that create the pick module. They have a variety of different configurations to meet the requirements of a range of industries. Some of the basic components of a pick module include pallet racks, mezzanines, and conveyors.

Optimize warehouse space

Consolidate storage and operations vertically, conserving valuable warehouse space. The footprint on your warehouse floor of a pick module can be designed to be as small or as big as you want. Having more room for products means more orders your business can fulfill. Creating and designing a pick module that best fits your warehouse facility means you’re able to customize it to your business’s storage needs.

Reduce the amount of time it takes to pick orders

Pick modules help to reduce the amount of time it takes to fulfill orders. By strategically planning your pick module system you can improve overall performance within the order fulfillment process. By implementing this system, you’ll see better order accuracy and efficiency.

Create a safe working environment

In the warehousing industries injuries are far too common. Workers in warehousing experience virtually two times as many bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues injuries. These lead to employee absences, job restrictions, or transfers costing companies a significant amount of money. By implementing creating an ergonomic working environment with a pick module system you reduce the risk of injury. If you reduce the risk of injury, you also eliminate the associated expenses.

Reduce worker fatigue

Pick modules help to reduce errors associated with worker fatigue. These systems help reduce time pickers spend going for elaborate walks while seeking items for order fulfillment. Streamlining the whole picking method, reducing picker fatigue and time needed to locate items, making way for flawless and timely delivery of orders.

Improve order fulfillment

Fulfilling a customer’s order is the most important part of your business. Since pick modules reduce worker fatigue, they increase your processing capacity and allow you and your team to move more products out the door and into the hands of your customers. Customer orders will be promptly delivered to packing and shipping areas, increasing accuracy and processing speed.

Increased labor savings

All the benefits mentioned above are reasons you’ll see an increase in labor savings.
