The extraction of orders is one of the most important activities in a logistics operation,as it involves labor combined with advanced technology that allows an optimal process and without costly errors.
This link is usually the spearhead for companies to meet the needs of their customers.
To perform a proper order extraction, a well-established process must be met to avoid errors, and Amerisa Logistics has the experience, technology and strength to achieve this:
1.- Receipt of the Product
The proper extraction process begins from the moment the product arrives at the warehouse; this is when the strategic location is assigned and the data and characteristics of the product to be safeguarded are saved in the WMS.
2.- Location and exact information of the product
Companies, in order to manage their orders properly, must have the ability to have accurate information about the quantity and location of the merchandise to be delivered (which is registered in the WMS).
3.- Extraction request
This is when the customer makes the request with the specifications of the product they want to extract. This step involves time and knowledge about the position the product is in to optimize order picking times and delivery.
4.- Verification process(3 review points)
The proper verification process should be very thorough to avoid errors that could affect profit margins:
4.1When locating the product, the information contained on the label must be validated with the help of the infrared reader to be sure that it is the correct product.
4.2 In the order extraction area, a second review must be carried out (this process is executed by a control table) where it is validated that the order is complete and that each product is the one requested.
4.3 Finally, when the product is loaded in transport,check against the output sheet that it is the product and quantity indicated.
5.- Final extraction
