Put-to-light for retail store replenishment.
Not all put-to-light applications are the same. LP Pack provides a highly sophisticated put-to-light solution specifically engineered for distribution centers servicing retail stores. Also called pack-to-light or put-to-store, LP Pack is ideal for retail store replenishment, and optimizes cross-docking operations where a percentage of full case quantities are broken down to store level cartons.
Cases of merchandise are routed to the DC’s break pack area. An operator scans the case and lights illuminate, directing quick sortation of the product to the right store carton and in the right unit quantities. Once the product is put to the store carton, the light module is extinguished to confirm the activity was completed.
Easily Add Capacity.
Lightning Pick’s cable-free light module design gives LP Pack the scalability and flexibility to quickly accommodate store location changes, and growth in a wide variety of rack and conveyor configurations. Further, a variety of advanced, integrated RF scanning technology options enable additional task management — along with the lights.
Lightning Pick’s powerful pack-to-light software successfully manages flow-through sortation processes throughout multiple distribution centers and across demanding supply networks. Manage a variety of specific process requirements through Lightning Pick at one or more fulfillment centers.
