In the May 2019 issue of Packaging World magazine, VP Editor Emeritus Pat Reynolds takes an in-depth look at the light-directed order fulfillment solutions from Matthews Automation Solutions’ brand Lightning Pick and how they’ve been applied to help third-party logistics (3PL) provider Capacity LLC support their e-commerce customers.
In “3PL Ups Its Game On E-Comm Order Fulfillment,” Reynolds outlines how Capacity is increasingly serving direct-to-consumer e-commerce businesses—including Glossier and Ouidad—to the tune of 20 million orders processed in 2018 alone. To better accommodate seasonal peaks, boost picking speed and throughput, and enhance accuracy, the company turned to Lightning Pick for a semi-automated system.
Writes Reynolds: “A key provider was Lightning Pick, which engineered a two-part solution. First, mobile pick-to-light carts for batch picking of required stock keeping units (SKUs). Second, put-to-light put walls for sorting and organizing picks into discrete customer orders prior to pack out. The entire installation is both scalable and modular, enabling Capacity to easily add more pick carts or put walls as needed should their operational needs change.”
