Assigning Bin Locations

During the batch picking process, ShipHero will map an efficient route through your warehouse based on the bin locations of the products you need to pick.

LearnGetting Started with Batch Picking

Tips:

  • Batches will sort alphanumerically starting with 0 or A
  • Bin locations should always have a consistent format and length to sort properly
    Example: You can use A-1-1 and A-1-2 or you can use A-01-01 and A-01-02.
    However you should not mix A-1-1 and A-1-02.
