With the installation of a new, light-directed putwall from VCO Systems, online retailer Rue La La has redesigned its picking process for multi-unit orders without the addition of unit sorters, conveyors or WMS upgrades. The partnership was featured in Modern Materials Handling.
“Batch picking in the existing solution was leveraged to pick multi-unit orders, significantly boosting picking efficiencies to mimic the processing of single unit orders with the putwalls,” said VCO Systems’ CEO Vikrant Angia. “They enable associates to sort orders efficiently and feed them to downstream pack stations for order shipping.”
The putwall was part of the company’s implementation of continuous process improvement and automation best practice strategies, explained Bill Carson, Rue La La’s VP of technology.
“Following the Six Sigma methodology to gain efficiencies and maintain accuracy in delivery of e-commerce orders was foremost in the planning and execution of this project,” Carson said. “Efficiencies gained in batch picking and putwall order processing lay the foundation for adding more components to further streamline our fulfillment process.”
