More Info on Order Picking Bins

Selecting a suitable pick / storage bin option for your business

Regardless of what design of picking container you decide on, there are usually a number of different material and customisation options that you can choose from as well.

This not only affects the performance and longevity of your chosen solution, but obviously the upfront costs as well.

However, it is important to consider the “lifetime costs” of your picking bins. A solution that costs twice as much initially, but lasts four times as long, is the more cost-effective option in the long run.

Why Use Picking Bins?

Put simply, sourcing and using the right storage bins for your business / application can help to minimise retrieval and picking times. Basically, you can get orders picked, packed and shipped in less time, leading to improved service and happier customers (who expect ever shorter lead times, particularly with online orders).

Similarly to this, using picking or lin bins can also help to minimise costly picking errors, reducing time wasted and helping to minimise customer returns.

Picking bins also help to organise your inventory, improving the efficiency of stock taking and manual replenishment.

Stock is also protected from dust, moisture and other debris, and if using plastic bins any spillages / damage can also be contained within the container (preventing damage to adjacent stock).

All of this can also be applied to manufacturing businesses too however, helping to improve productivity by enabling staff to get stored components and parts to your production line more quickly and efficiently.

Picking Bin FAQs

Common questions regarding picking / storage bins

Please see below for a list of the most commonly asked questions on the topic of order picking bins.

Can’t find the answer to your specific question? No problem! Please contact a member of the GWP team on 01793 754 457 or email [email protected], who will be happy to help.

What are picking bins?

Picking bins (sometimes also referred to as pick bins, picking containers or even stacking boxes depending on the type) is a generic term given to storage containers used in warehouses and fulfilment centres. They keep contents safe and allow for easy “picking” when orders are placed. This makes picking bins exceptionally popular with ecommerce businesses and 3Pl / fulfilment companies.

What are Lin Bins?

Lin bins or linbins are actually a brand name for a type of moulded plastic shelf bin. They are available in 10 sizes and 5 colours, meaning they are a good option if a very cheap solution is required. GWP can offer a range of Linbin alternatives, as well as custom sized Correx® picking bins with equivalent performance.

Why are some containers called K Bins?

As with Lin Bins, K Bins are in fact a brand name for a range of shelf bins. K Bins however are manufactured from corrugated cardboard material and are available in a range of stock sizes. You can source all of the standard sized cardboard picking bins from GWP Correx®, as well as custom sizes tailored to your specific requirements.

Should I use Correx® picking bins?

Correx® picking bins are one of the more versatile options available when looking for either shelf or stacking bins. They can be designed to offer similar strength to moulded plastic containers, whilst offering size flexibility too. They are also considerably more robust than corrugated cardboard pick bins, yet can be comparable price wise. However, if you are unsure of their suitability for your specific application, a member of the team at GWP will be happy to advise.

Why do some businesses use cardboard picking bins?

Cardboard picking bins are the lowest cost option when looking for an order picking solution. This makes them quite versatile in terms of if you need to change inventory – and hence the bin sizes – relatively often. They also offer excellent scope for printing / branding too. However, they are arguably not as cost effective as plastic picking bins in the mid to longer term, due to their shorter lifespan.

Can I customise my picking bins?

Most picking bins can be customised in a number of ways, which can include external printing, labelling, adding internal dividers and inserts and whether they include stacking features or even louvres for wall hanging. Correx® picking bins take this a step further by offering complete control over the size, shape, style and functionality (stacking, open front etc.).

What is the difference between a shelf bin and a parts bin?

In practice, there is no difference between a shelf bin and a parts bin – both are generally used on shelves or racking to safely store parts or products. The major difference between differing types of picking bins would be whether they are predominantly used on racking / shelving, or whether they are free standing and / or can be stacked.

What are Euro stacking pick bins?

Stacking pick bins are generally free-standing containers (although are frequently used within racking) that can be stacked upon each other (as the name would suggest). These are particularly useful for creating additional storage space during busy times, or where there is no racking or shelving available. The “Euro” element of the name simply means that they conform to a range of standard / stock sizes (e.g. 600 x 400mm, 300 x 400mm etc.).

How can I make a pick face wall in my warehouse?

A pick face wall is essentially a group of storage bins used in conjunction with one another to create a bank or wall of picking locations. This can be achieved by adding shelf or parts bins to existing racking locations, or by using stacking picking bins alongside each other to create your pick face wall.

Custom sizes and options, free quotes and impartial advice

With so many companies offering stock ranges of picking bins, how do you decide where to purchase yours from?

Well, GWP Correx® is different from the vast majority of these companies. If you are looking for the lowest cost option, then we will be happy to quote, but are unlikely to be the cheapest. Companies keeping a large stock holding of low cost bins will win here.

What GWP can offer however, is a picking solution that is tailored to your specific requirements.

We will achieve this by aiming to understand the difficulties and challenges you are facing from the outset, and then coming up with a solution that is tailored to your requirements.

This may mean designing and creating a completely bespoke stacking pick bin from Correx®, or modifying a specific shelf bin with dividers and print.

But whatever it entails, you can be certain that not only will it be a cost effective option over the longer term, will provide you the productivity gains, inventory protection and / or make the efficient use of space that your business requires.
