Order packing is one of the most vital functions in your warehouse. Your order packing software can make or break your ability to operate efficiently. You need a solution that supports same-day and two-day shipping and delivery capabilities to meet growing customer demands for fast service. It's a critical competitive tool to ensure you can meet customer expectations cost-effectively.
Your packing software should coordinate with your picking software to ensure goods reach the packing stations in the most efficient manner. The packing software should designate the carton size for maximum efficiency to reduce the number of boxes used per order. That step can cut shipping costs, boosting your margins without sacrificing service. After all, order packing is all about speed, efficiency, and accuracy. Your processes should be as simple and repeatable as possible.
To select the most efficient sized box the order packing software uses factors such as size, orientation restrictions, stacking factors (which provide direction and control in the packing process), weight, and product compatibility. The packer can place the items in the box in the most efficient configuration to reduce the need for packing materials.
Order packing software can prompt packers to add materials such as catalogs, coupons and return information into each box. The software can be customized to add items based on the product – if a customer orders a pet toy, the fulfillment team can include a sales flyer with additional pet products in the shipment.
