Christmas Order Picking Made Easy with Our Quality Trolleys

If you own or manage an industrial or retail warehouse, no doubt it’s your busiest time of the year, and fulfilling customer orders efficiently and successfully might just be the difference between a very successful end to the year, and a mediocre one.

Order picking is an important process in distribution centres and warehouses premises, and it affects the overall productivity and success of the business.

The order process

In most businesses, the order process looks something like this:

  • You receive the orders: From your website, on the telephone, or in your stores for example.
  • The orders are picked: 70% of labour time during the order process is spent picking products, so the more efficient this part of the process is the better, as it will help your business to grow and reduces your costs.
  • You pack the orders: Invoices are printed, the products are packed, and a shipping label is added.
  • The orders are shipped: The shipping company collects the orders and distributes them to your customers.

The right equipment

Because order picking is so instrumental to your company’s success, choosing the right equipment to improve efficiency in this area as much as possible is essential. The right order picking trolleys will improve your productivity massively.

Order picking trolleys that will make your business more efficient

Heavy Duty 5 Step Order Picking Trolley

This trolley speeds up productivity by gliding up the aisles in warehouses and factories so workers can easily access the items they need to pick in minutes. It’s made from strong powder coated epoxy steel, and it comes with 3 spacious trays, 5 steps with a built-in support rail, 2 retractable castor wheels at the front and 2 fixed castor wheels at the rear and a hand-operated braking system. This trolley is also completely customisable, and you can buy extra baskets and trays to suit your needs.

Heavy Duty Order Picking Trolley

This trolley is the one for you if you want to invest in some equipment that’s going to make a big difference to productivity. It’s made from tough powder coated steel, it has 4 fully galvanised trays, an integrated step ladder with side supports, and 4 castors (2 fixed and 2 swivel) for easy manoeuvring across surfaces. If your staff often need to pick items that are stored at height, the fact that the trolley locks securely in place when the ladder is being used should give some peace of mind about safety.

Order Picking Trolley to Hold Containers

This is designed for use with 600mm x 400mm containers, so this trolley is for you if you pick and move around smaller items on a regular basis.

It’s made from hard-wearing steel, and it has 2 large trays, which can hold either 3 or 4 containers, depending on your choice of model, a built-in ladder with handrails, and 4 castor wheels, 2 of which have brakes to secure it when it’s being loaded with stock.

This trolley can be customised to meet the needs of any busy workplace. It’s made from high grade steel, it has handles at both ends, a spring-loaded ladder to enable workers to easily reach items that are stored at height, and the 4 rubber tyre swivel castors help it to glide easily across surfaces. If that’s not enough, you have a choice of either 2 or 3 shelves in either plywood or steel, and there’s a 3-year guarantee for peace of mind that you’ve made a great choice.
