Are Your Pack Stations Optimized?

The picking and packing process can be costly and complex. Getting it wrong can cause higher costs and lower productivity. Getting it right will support fulfillment growth and long-term efficiency gains.

Packer Challenges to Overcome

  • Pickers are paid to walk an average of 15 miles per day, which equals more than 50% of time spent on the job
  • 90% of labor in a packaging operation is non-value add, with efficiency rarely above 60%
  • A packer on the job for one year is 10% more efficient than a new employee
  • Packers risk daily strain and injury when repetitive actions in the packing environments do not fit the needs of the operator

Risks of Ignoring Inefficient
Pack Stations

For many manufacturers and distributors, the pick and pack process has a direct impact on warehouse productivity, business profitability, and the satisfaction of warehouse employees and customers. Without methodically designed packaging stations that meet the demands of both warehouse managers and their packers, companies can experience:

  • Difficulty with labor retention due to unhappy packers
  • Higher packaging material costs due to inefficient and disparate packing methods
  • Dissatisfied customers due to longer production lead times and slower order throughput
  • Poor demand forecasting due to process unpredictability
  • More risk of worker injury due to non-ergonomic pack stations
