Pick Module System

Home / Products / Pick Module

Pick modules integrate a variety of material handling solutions to optimize the flow of orders. They move product efficiently through a distribution center and expedite the order fulfillment process.

The design of a pick module can be for manual pick applications, automated pick applications, or a combination of both. These integrated systems consolidate space and create an efficient distribution center, reducing or eliminating walking time, and saving on labor costs.

Typical Components and Layout of a Pick Module

Warehouse pick modules can include a number of elements in one design to produce the optimal layout and flow process for your operation:

Pick module layouts vary, but often contain areas to accommodate faster moving and slower moving products, and/or palletized products and piece picking. These areas are sometimes referred to as forward pick and reserve storage areas. Pick module layouts can be one level or multiple levels. Systems can also be designed so that it's initially one level, but can be expanded vertically in the future. Read this case study for an example of this.

Benefits of Using a Pick Module and How to Achieve These Benefits in Your Distribution Center

Pick modules can be very beneficial to a distribution center's operation. The right pick module will increase efficiency, density, selectivity, and ultimately profits. 

In order to achieve these outcomes, the right layout and integration of material handling solutions must be put together. This is why it's so important to use an experienced material handling integrator to help design your system.

There are a number of steps an integrator will work through with you in order to achieve your optimal pick module solution:

  1.  Gain a thorough understanding of your operation, including number and types of SKUs, available space, throughput requirements, and current material handling methods used.
  2. Educate you on material handling system options that make sense for your operation. For example, pallet flow vs. pallet runner, static racking vs. dynamic racking, going with an automation option vs. not. 
  3. Based on your feedback, develop a layout that optimizes your space and SKUs. 
  4. One the layout is approved, the integrator will then project manage the entire pick module through completion.
