Cartonization software increases efficiency and reduces labor in picking and packing operations by combining pick and pack in a single step. Cartonization software utilizes programmed mathematics to eliminate guesswork of operators which drastically reduces wasted touches and labor expenses. Automating carton selection in picking and packing processes reduces costs of corrugated boxes and void material which adds up to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year in distribution operations processing a few hundred boxes per day.
Combine Cartonization with Voice Picking System Technology
Combining cartonization software with voice picking technology significantly increases productivity as operators are directed through an optimized path by voice with hands free picking into pre-selected cartons. Add pick to light and companies see an improvement in productivity anywhere from 35% to 50%.
Cartonization software automatically calculates the smallest sized carton available to fit all products based on SKU weight and dimension data. Cartonization software directs the operator through voice picking to choose the right sized carton up front.

A leading retail order fulfillment company that processed orders for more than 250 retail stores recently replaced their paper picking process with voice picking technology, increasing productivity by an average of 35 percent. In addition to productivity gains, the new voice picking system provided an accuracy level of 99.96% to this company which has more than one million active SKUs operating in a 350,000 square foot facility.
Moving from a paper-based picking system to a modern voice picking system seemed like a monumental task, but with the help of an experienced warehouse automation company, they implemented the new automated warehouse technology with great success.
Numina Provides Warehouse Automation Solutions
The Numina Group was chosen to implement warehouse automation technology for this retail fulfillment giant, which was utilizing a manual system that was primarily paper based for all picking and replenishment functions. Numina Group was brought in to analyze the operation and provide a detailed design study with automation recommendations.
The current operation consisted of pickers following paper instructions and individually picking each item using price label sheets across four standard pick zones. Picks ranged from 30 items to 300 per store, all picked into totes. Once manual picking was complete, a conveyor sorted and transported the totes to the staging area to prepare for shipping. Employees picked items for an average of 63 retail stores per day. Some stores had shipping requirements of 35-40 totes per day while other larger stores required up to 175 totes per day.
This paper picking process was very labor intensive and was draining resources and profits.
Numina Performs Warehouse Design Studies
Numina Group began with a detailed process design study to evaluate the best automation technologies that would provide the most streamlined and cost-efficient solution with maximum return on investment. Numina partnered with company personnel including operations team members and executives to analyze the current order fulfillment process, then defined the leanest approach in a detailed flow chart showing projected return on investment.
Multi-modal voice picking technology with hands free barcode scanning was chosen as the warehouse automation technology which would provide the highest and fastest return on investment (ROI). Numina’s study showed that voice picking technology could provide a complete ROI within one year. Implementation of Numina’s voice picking system has exceeded expectations with improvements in productivity of 35% and accuracy to 99.96%, which will provide an even faster ROI.
