What Pick-to-Light Is and How it Works With Your Industrial Shelves

One of the latest picking methods to hit Chicago industrial shelves is Pick To Light (PTL). This new system uses digital readouts to help the picker locate the items on the shelf and determine how many are in the order. Once the item has been picked for the order, the picker clears the readout by pressing a button on the industrial shelves, indicating to the system that the item has been selected. The PTL system offers several benefits:

  • Lowers error rates. The computerized system indicates which items are on the order, so there is less room for human error by, for instance, incorrectly reading a part number or transposing numbers on the order.
  • High efficient. Pickers won’t have to search their industrial shelves for the correct part; lighted signs will guide the way and speed up the picking process.
  • Easy inventory tracking. As digital readouts are cleared, inventory of that item can automatically be adjusted in your system.

This picking method is great for warehouses that are dealing with a high number of SKUs and could be especially beneficial to e-commerce businesses. The system can be easily integrated into your existing industrial shelves, giving your Chicago business the edge it needs to process orders faster, make more happy customers, and grow your bottom line.
