What is a Pick Module?

A pick module system or warehouse pick module is a multi-level, engineered system comprising various storage mediums designed to move SKUs throughout a fulfillment operation. These systems utilize several space-saving solutions to store SKUs according to throughput.

By examining the total SKUs within your warehouse and analyzing slow-movers, medium-movers, and fast-movers, you can determine the perfect combination of storage mediums to assign each SKU to its optimal position (or slot). In a high-performing order picking operation, the systems use various static shelving, tilted pick shelving, high-density storage, carton flow, pallet flow, and conveyors. Implementing these solutions creates maximum order picking efficiency and increases SKU density.

Where are Pick Modules Used?

They are strategically designed to improve overall performance within order fulfillment operations. A highly effective module aims to optimize the cubic space within a warehouse to minimize the amount of time order pickers spend searching for and picking SKUs to fulfill orders.

Pick Module Benefits

The ultimate goal of any fulfillment operation is to increase speed while driving down costs, and a thoughtfully designed warehouse is a significant part of achieving that goal.

The use of a warehouse pick module is beneficial to operations across industries including:

  • Retail
  • eCommerce
  • Grocery
  • Wholesale distribution
  • Pharmacy
  • Beer, wine, and liquor distribution

Best Practices to Improve Pick Modules


With the right combination of storage solutions, you can create a multi-level system that condenses and organizes SKUs to enhance overall productivity within your operation. When designed correctly, it will maximize space within your facility and reduce search and travel time.

Increase SKU Density

Implementing a SpeedCell dynamic industrial shelving system is ideal for the slow-moving SKUs within your operation. A necessary part of any order picking operation, high-density storage solutions like SpeedCell can increase storage density up to 60% and reduce labor costs up to 40%. SpeedCell can be installed into an existing pallet rack to transform unused space in your facility into highly efficient storage.

Service Excellence is Our Priority

UNEX’s SpanTrack carton flow systems are ideal for medium-moving SKUs. This innovative carton flow solution drops into existing pallet racks to create a robust flow system for any operation. Whether you’re looking for dedicated roller lanes, universal wheel beds, or a combination of both, SpanTrack can maximize space within your facility and increase throughput up to 150% compared to picking from a pallet.
