Order fulfilment

Pick and pack is a type of order fulfillment used most often by eCommerce retailers that receive small orders that are shipped around the globe. Rather than preparing and shipping entire cases and pallets of goods, eCommerce retailers rely on workers who pull (pick) individual items from master cartons on warehouse shelves and then place them in boxes or envelopes (pack) addressed to specific customers for shipment. This process gives pick and pack workers easy access to items and, when organized correctly, saves handling time. Pick and pack also limit freight charges and other costs.
