Batch-Picking Cart Solutions

 Simple, Efficient, Affordable Order Fulfillment

Batch picking, sometimes referred to as cluster picking, increases the efficiency of distribution center operations by enabling an individual picker to pick multiple orders with one trip through the picking area.

FastFetch’s batch picking solution combines the best features of pick-to-light, put-to-light, voice, and wireless barcode scanning technologies into a single cart-based solution that yields significant increases in both the speed and accuracy of piece picking.
