    A distribution center using automated case picking, rather than manual picking and packing, has higher throughput, as well as higher pick accuracy and greater pallet stability. Although automated fulfillment systems tend to be a significant investment, they pay off not only in the form of reduced labor costs, but also in increased efficiency, fewer mistakes filling orders, and reduced product damage during transportation. Automated case picking creates stable mixed pallets that are loaded as close to the weight limit as possible.
