Put to Wall

Put Wall and its Advantages

A Put Wall is basically a shelving system (fluid or static) outfitted with put lights. Each shelf slot, or tote, represents an order for an eCommerce customer or part of a store order in a retail operation. Totes are picked upstream, mainly batch picked at active locations (pick modules or racks) and conveyed to the put wall area.

Put walls are particularly popular in ecommerce operations which handle small average orders, as a worker can pick multiple orders to a single tote, but then split them into individual orders at the wall.
