The Black Knight Distributing system is state of the art, supporting pallet-based picking for high-velocity batch orders, flow-rack systems for appropriate SKU’s, and smaller bins for lower velocity SKU’s. Inventory velocity is created at the SKU level, and the appropriate bin structure and location is system generated to optimize storage requirements and throughput.
The technology backbone is extremely flexible enabling our operations team to utilize different pick/pack models based on volume and velocity. For example, the system allows for club orders to be generated in batch mode, and then allocated to high velocity pallet based pick locations; while simultaneously creating individual picks for dailies in lower velocity locations.
Order entry is supported across multiple platforms. Orders can be generated through commercial web-based shopping cart platforms, through API or EDI integrations with customer-based CMR systems and through our proprietary web-based portal. We can integrate with most commercial web-based order systems including a full range of client-based CMR engines.
