Picking by Source
Picking by Source is a method in which pickers successively pick all items going to a particular destination regardless of the aisle in which each item is located. This can be done by scanning a barcode on the item which will direct the picker to the correct location. This method is often used when items are being shipped to multiple destinations and need to be sorted accordingly. Picking by source can help to increase accuracy and efficiency in the picking process, as well as reduce travel time for the picker.
