Bastian Solutions Achieving Higher Throughput Gains at Packing Stations

Bastian Solutions, a global material handling systems integrator and expert in e-commerce fulfillment automation, was featured in Modern Materials Handling revealing how packing stations are unclogging bottlenecks and improving order fulfillment productivity. Sara Pearson Specter, Editor at Large, reported, “Distribution centers that once thought a couple of 8- to 10-foot-long folding tables were up to the job of packaging picked orders for shipping have now re-evaluated the importance of these areas.”

Mike Clemens, senior consultant at Bastian Solutions, noted, for even higher throughput gains, packing stations can be equipped with varying levels of automation to enhance operator productivity when integrated with a warehouse management system (WMS) and warehouse control system (WCS). The WMS and WCS can pre-cube orders that fit in a certain size or type of carton, or can batch orders with identical line items together. This advanced user interface can display carton size, placement instructions and embedded labor reporting. It can also provide real-time feedback, such as engineered standards and an item pick image display.

“When the picker delivers the items to a packing station, they can be quickly sorted. That sorting might be supported with a wide flat-screen monitor with pictures of each item and work instructions about which item goes in which box,” Clemens commented. “Alternately, a light beam might be employed to illuminate the source bin of the picked item or the destination carton.”
