Pick-and-pack is a form of value-added service that is an integral part of supply chain management. Pick and pack fulfillment is the process that occurs after an order is placed from an online store. Picking is using a pick list to find the proper quantities of each product from its respective location in the warehouse. Packing is the placing of the items into the appropriate box, along with packing materials and documentation before the package is labeled and shipped to the eventual destination.

To reduce the cost of e-commerce fulfillment, the pick and pack processes need to be as streamlined as possible. For picking, this means reducing the labor required to choose the right products for an order. Fulfillment centers that do pick and pack have a few different ways to do this:

Batch picking


orders will be done in batches all at once instead of one at a time.

Piece picking


is when an employee handpicks each product for an entire order, as they come in.

Many fulfillment centers will have a warehouse management system (WMS) that can detail which box will be the most appropriate choice for the order at hand. A good warehouse combined with a great WMS can turn around pick and pack orders quickly and with a high accuracy rate.

Whether you are fulfilling orders for single end customers or a retail store, it may seem like there isn’t much of a difference between the two. An order is an order, right? Not exactly. B2C (business-to-consumer) and B2B (business-to-business) each require very different operations and processes. Each order delivery, whether to one single consumer or a business, needs to reflect your brand. Otherwise, you might lose customers, working with a third-party logistics company that aligns with your brand will help you navigate the differences between fulfilling B2C orders and the complexities of B2B orders.

B2B Order Fulfillment 


B2B fulfillment deals with the distribution of goods from business to business. In other words, they transport large, bulk shipments to a receiving company. Larger companies integrate their warehousing with their B2B order fulfillment service using electronic data interchange software. Doing so helps businesses exchange order data and shipping information with their suppliers in real-time. These fulfillment centers also have to comply with specific guidelines such as barcode labeling, product description, invoice, and shipment details.

B2C Order Fulfillment 


B2C fulfillment focuses on delivering manufactured goods directly to customers. This type of order fulfillment is easier to manage as compared to B2B because large, bulk shipments are not involved. Typically these companies have less stringent regulations while in-time delivery and customer satisfaction are the two primary requirements.
