GET YOUR PICK TROLLEYS IN A ROW
Booming e-commerce, resulting in smaller orders and more single-piece goods, has made “pick by cart” and “trolley picking” major buzz-words in warehouse operations. With system support from Astro WMS® Trolley and solution approved hardware you are guaranteed to make the most of your picking trolleys, from inbound to returns, down to every single compartment.
Using trolleys (or pick carts) in the warehouse is an efficient way to handle multi-order picking of smaller items and boxes. The trolley is divided into compartments, facilitating parallel picking of up to 80-100 orders in each pick round, and is pushed around manually or assisted by a trolley truck or tow tractor. The benefits of using trolleys in the warehouse are several:
HIGHER EFFICIENCY when picking several orders in parallel increases picking speed and productivity.
MORE FLEXIBILITY with the same trolleys used for both inbound, put-away, picking, and packing.
IMPROVED ERGONOMICS through less legwork for warehouse workers.
MONEY SAVED on fewer fork lifts and less need for labelling of incoming goods.

KEEP YOUR TROLLEYS UNDER CONTROL WITH ASTRO WMS®
Trolley picking is a good choice for our customers in e-commerce as well as spare part warehouses and companies keeping small articles in a separate warehouse area. But using trolleys also means new challenges in warehouse management. The trolleys need to be checked in and out of the system, each compartment must be assigned to a specific order, and pickers and trolleys need to be equipped with mobile screens, scanners, and printers. And that’s where we at Consafe Logistics and our Trolley solution come in.
With Astro WMS® Trolley module each trolley is “hooked up” to the system and assigned for either inbound, put-away, picking and packing, or return handling. Each compartment is assigned an individual order during the pick round. Both trolleys and compartments are easily reconfigured in the system, for optimal flexibility and efficiency.
