The picking process can be a real issue for many warehouse operations – particularly when it involves individual products, cases and part-pallets.
Picking tunnels can create a safe, high performance picking solution with a dedicated, FLT-free area, easy to access products and constantly available picking face.
The picking tunnel is created using a mezzanine structure with buffer stock above and a gravity-fed mini pallet live system to feed the products to the picking area.
By using systems such as radio shuttle racking, pallet live or push back racking to provide the buffer stock above, the travel times throughout the entire process are completely minimised.
The system can also be enhanced with a built in empty pallet removal system, a traffic light warning system to prioritise replenishment requirements or automated conveyors.
