In Shipmondo there are three different picking solutions:

  • Pick with digital pick paths (paperless picking)

  • Pick with pick path lists

  • Pick with pick lists

If you don’t know the difference between the picking solutions, we recommend that you read our article that reviews the solutions, so that you can choose the solution that fits your needs.

In this guide, we review how to pick with pick path lists.

How to create a pick path

In the order overview, select the orders for which you would like to create a pick path.

In the example below, we mark 8 orders.

Click Create pick path.

NB! If your primary button is called Start pick path, you can change it to Create pick path list under Settings > Pick.

A document will now be created consisting of:

  • A pick path list which contains all items from all 8 orders to be picked

  • 8 delivery notes (one delivery note for each order)

Pro tip: If you want to manage specific orders together – for example, orders that have the same delivery method or orders with the same product number – then you can use filtering of orders.

The pick path list

On the pick path list, you can see all the products from all 8 orders together.

The pick pack list will be sorted by product placement, if it is stated on the product. If your product doesn’t have location codes, then the picking list will be sorted by SKU.

  • Bin: Your item location (bin code) on the product (if it is stated on the product)

  • Pick: Number of products to be picked

  • Box: Box number on your picking box

When using pick path lists, you must have picking boxes and possibly a shelf trolley (see the pictures in the next section).

Pro tip:

Add bin codes to your products in Shipmondo and work even faster and more efficiently. See how here.

How to pick with pick paths

Below, you can read about how to pick products from pick paths.

Step 1 - Create a pick path

Mark the orders to be picked and create a pick path (see the instructions above).

Print the document with the picking list and the delivery notes.

Step 2 - Place delivery notes in picking boxes

If you pick, for example, 8 orders at a time, you need 8 pick boxes.

Be sure to number your picking boxes.

If you have a shelf trolley, you can number the trolley spaces instead of the picking boxes (see the example in the picture below).

Place the delivery notes in your picking boxes based on the numbering:

Delivery note #1 goes in box #1,

Delivery note #2 goes in box #2,

Delivery note #3 goes in box #3,

Delivery note #4 goes in box #4,

Delivery note #5 goes in box #5,

Etc.

The picking trolley below has 16 picking boxes, which allows you to pick up to 16 orders at a time.

Step 3 - Pick the products from the pick path list

Pick the products according to the instructions on the picking list.

Pick the number next to Pick on the picking list and place the products in the correct picking box number, which is next to Box on the picking list.

Repeat the above until all the products on the picking list have been picked.

Step 4 - Complete the orders

Once all the products have been found, you can close the orders one by one, or you can bulk-fulfill all the orders at once.

You will find your ongoing orders under Initiated on your order overview.

You can bulk-fulfill your orders by selecting the orders and selecting the desired bulk action in the dropdown from the arrow to the right of the Create Pick Path button.

If you want to complete your orders individually, then you can read about how to create a delivery and shipment, as well as complete an order in section 2 of this manual.

Pro tip: Use our hand scanner solution and complete an order quickly, accurately and efficiently by scanning the delivery note. Read more about how to get started using the hand scanner solution here.
