What is Light Picking?
Light picking is a method that aims for high efficiency by placing a light or visual sign on each product shelf or compartment in warehouses or distribution centers, helping to find the right products quickly.
How Does the Lighted Collection System Work?
A light or sign turns on at the location of the ordered product
The worker reaches the right product quickly by following this light or sign.
Immediately after collecting the products, the person presses the button next to the light or confirms the relevant purchase from the mobile device, and then the relevant light or sign turns off. The process is completed.
