48 States uses the latest warehouse technology to reach nearly 100% accuracy with orders. Our tieline has a “pick-to-light” system, with LED lights showing each item and the number to be picked for each one of your orders. Each bin has a scale, so if the light says “3” and the picker picks up “4”, a buzzer sounds until the correct weight and count is selected. At the end of the tieline, each order is weighed again as a quality control step that accounts for box weight and which box size to use.
Mispulls are practically eliminated, saving you and your accounting department multiple steps to correct each one.
This technology investment was substantial, but the gain in customer satisfaction and saved labor is worth it!
