Order picking is one of the key tasks in warehouse logistics. We collect everything that needs to be in your recipient’s shopping cart. Our pickers choose the picking process that best suits the storage methods and your order: FEFO, FIFO, LIFO, HIFO, LOFO, pick by light, pick by scan, goods to person.
At all our locations with warehouse logistics services, we use the paperless pick by scan method for business and private deliveries. Picking is carried out in one or two stages depending on the volume and weight of the shipment. And, if required, we carry out quality checks during the picking process. The inventory is continuously updated as the serial numbers are recorded.
Under this storage principle, we pick goods with the earliest expiry date first. We use it for perishable storage units such as food or pharmaceuticals where the best-before date is the decisive criterion for storage.
With this method, items that are stored first are also picked first. It is used, for example, in flow rack storage.
Pick by scan is a paperless picking method for which we use a mobile data acquisition (MDA) device. This replaces the traditional paper picking list. The order data is either stored locally or provided by the warehouse management system via WLAN. This reduces the amount of unproductive time in the order picking process.
Automated warehouse logistics ensures the goods are provided dynamically and automatically. Your items are carried directly to the order picker in containers or on pallets using the latest conveyor technology. We maintain picking stations for individual and layer picking. Naturally we return opened pallets to storage in our high-bay warehouse.
This procedure is not personal and is common in our spare parts warehouses. A display on the shelf uses light signals at each storage location to indicate which items are to be picked for the order at hand. A numeric display shows the number of parts; the picker confirms removal by pressing a button.
For this order picking process, the order picker uses data glasses to assemble the items or goods for customer or production orders. These smart glasses provide them with information on the respective order on their round. The glasses also show them which shelf or pallet an item is on. This technology is currently still in development.
In our customer portal, you will find a range of apps for managing your transport and warehouse logistics data around the clock. Here is an overview of the key apps:
This is our web-based warehouse logistics tool for business and private customers. Here you can enter packing and picking orders, manage your warehouse master data, view your inventory, manage the blocking status and view and export delivery notes or invoice attachments. We electronically archive all documents relating to your stored goods.
Our IT department uses an electronic data interface (EDI) to link your ERP software with our transport or warehouse logistics system – or both. This ensures that all transport-related data such as sender and recipient, type of goods, number of items, packaging, gross weight, dimensions and all the information required for warehouse logistics such as article master data, production order, parts list, customer order, status bookings and returns handling match your ERP data. If you do not want an EDI interface, you can enter your orders manually in our customer portal.
Our efficient order picking services can optimise your logistics costs.
The expertise of our order pickers grows with every new customer – so you also benefit.

We greatly appreciate our long-term partnership and the continuous development work involved. The reliable and structured set-up of the warehouse logistics means that we have a high degree of flexibility in goods receipt and order picking if there are fluctuations in volume. This is extremely beneficial for us.Michael Eser Pacovis AG
