Picking is the process of preparing orders. The objective of the picking process is to select, organize the products in the warehouse before packaging and start-up for the final customer. The order preparation process can be manual, automated or mixed. The space where the merchandise is prepared is called “picking area”.
On the contrary, packing is the packaging process of the product. It begins when the product has physical properties, chemical behaviors and even the biological evolution of the product.
