Goods to Person (G2P)

Goods to person is used to describe a traditional method of filling orders that delivers product to an order picker or customer at a retail pick-up location. This can also be referred to as a “goods-to-picker” system.

Goods to person systems remove much of the walking and human intervention from the order fulfillment process, resulting in improved efficiency and error reduction.

A warehouse control system (WCS) can use machinery to automate the process.  Carousels, conveyors and robots are types of equipment used with a warehouse control system for a goods to person strategy.

Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) are also used to retrieve goods from shelves and deliver them to an order picker’s workstation.
