Cliff Holste: Automated sorting improves eaches picking efficiency
from Supply Chain Digest
"Piece picking," "eaches picking," "loose case picking," "broken case picking" and "split case picking" are the most common terms used to describe the picking of individual items. Typically, these items are picked directly into a corrugated shipping container or perhaps a captive plastic tote box used as a material handling transport container for moving items through the picking operation. Individual item picking often is the cause of much consternation among distribution managers.
