Speedy Batch is a powerful math-optimizer that permits users to improve the efficiency in most modern distribution centers that have intensive case - (or eaches) - picking and sorting environments.
Speedy Batch can be used both in automated or in manually-operated distribution centers and plays a core role in the presence of:
- a batch picking process serving downstream sorting
- a sorting process
The operational goal could be different case by case picking, for example with tne need to maximize the picking productivity &/or the sorting productivity. A prime example for using Speedy Batch to optimize the processes.
The parametric objective function and the set of configurable constraints of Speedy Batch allow clients to fit the operational needs of the process.
Speedy Batch includes the functionality to optimally sequence the list of batches. The goal of such optimization it could be related to the productivity and/or the saturation of the produced unit loads (eg boxes).
Speedy Batch can be easily integrated with existing IT applications, WMS and control systems where automated handling is present.

- Maximize productivity of picking and or sorting
- Balancing saturation of handling units
- Maximize saturation of unit loads (e.g. generated boxes) / reduce the number of shipped Unit Loads
- Improve service level respecting merchandize & customer constraints;
Speedy Batch is sophisticated technology that ables customers to fit complex processes and work in real-time. It has several functions, the following list just highlight the most important.
- Multi-parametric objective functions including productivity, saturation and qualitative aspects
- Management of priorities
- Management of configurable constraints like, for example:
- Compatibility of orders – products and load units (for example different customers could be served by standard shipping boxes respecting different constraints
- Governance of the distribution of an item on multiple boxes for the same customer served
- Compatibility of products with the type of process / handling system used
