Cartonization software combines orders in picking and packing operations for increased efficiency and streamlined path flow. Cartonization software uses advanced mathematical programs to take the guesswork out of carton selection by operators. This automation significantly reduces wasted touches, material and labor costs.
Cartonization software reduces material costs by selecting the right size of carton for the product which reduces corrugated and void material expenses. For distribution centers processing a few hundred cartons per day this adds up to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.
Combine Voice Picking Technology with Cartonization Software
By combining voice picking technology with cartonization software, companies significantly increase productivity while reducing expenses. Voice picking systems direct operators through the most optimized path with easy to understand voice commands. Voice picking system with hands free, barcode scanning and pick to light provides improvements in productivity from 35% to 50%.
Studies show that when operators have a choice, they will err on the conservative side and choose a larger size of carton. The right cartonization software will select the right size of carton based on SKU weight and dimension data. This provides significant cost reductions for shipping materials.
