Pick and pack distribution is the process of goods being picked from a shipment, before being individually repackaged ready for distribution to its next destination. During this process, the warehouse receives a shipment. It is then entered into an inventory management system and placed in storage. Most warehouses will have specific zones based on the size of items and the required storage conditions.
The pick and pack process or omnichannel fulfillment involves pulling items from various locations around the warehouse and packing them together according to a customer’s instructions. Once packed, this product is delivered to its next destination, with the client receiving confirmation and updated inventory information.
