Picavi pick-by-vision for 3PLs with multi-shift picks provides rapid return on investment (ROI). Picavi pick-by-vision was recently featured in Logistics Matter magazine. Pick-by-vision is simplifying the complex and diverse world of third-party logistics (3PL). The outdated use of pick-to-light and voice picking have given way to the affordable, efficacious, and efficiency of pick-by-vision. Read the entire article here.
The top reason fast-growing manufacturers seek a 3PL provider is to scale logistics capabilities. 3PLs allow manufacturers the ability to adjust to increasing seasonal spikes which have never been more significant. Only when fulfillment demands are met can a manufacturer plan for exponential growth.
Some 3PLs oversee packaging and crating of products, offering additional services as needed. 3PLs are usually asset-based but may subcontract pieces of the logistics paradigm, such as transportation. Factors like delivery requirements, shipping schedules, and market conditions are important considerations.
Of the many services a 3PL offers, none is more important that accurate picking. The cost of a mis-pick almost always exceeds the profit margin of FMCG (fast moving consumer good).
One of the most important factors in determining a pick-by-vision ROI are the number of picking shifts in operation. If there is more than one picking shift per day, then equipment can be shared between pickers on different shifts. This can be done respecting COVID quality and safety considerations. With multiple picking shifts the ROI payback is approximately six months. For a 3PL company with a single picking shift per day, payback within one year would be a more realistic target.
