This may involve selecting cartons from full pallets loads, or selecting items from cartons stored on shelves or in live systems.

The process of order picking is labour intensive and therefore one of the most costly elements of warehousing and distribution operations.


Conveyor systems can be cost effective and streamline the order picking process. The different types of conveyors available are:

  • Gravity roller conveyor
  • Powered roller conveyor
  • Belt conveyor
