Remote advance system puts low-level picking in operator’s hands

Crown’s QuickPick Remote Advance system is designed to make low-level picking in warehouses and distribution centres simple.

Available on the Crown PC 4500 Series centre console rider pallet trucks, QuickPick Remote Advance is designed to allow operators to remotely advance the truck to the next picking point without having to climb back onto the truck, or walk along beside it holding the steering control.

The system relies on a special glove that has a remote control fitted for controlling the truck’s movement.

Order selectors simply press a button on a wireless transceiver glove to remotely advance the truck to the next pick location, eliminating the need to return to the operator’s compartment while picking.  

The technology consists of a wireless transceiver module that snaps into a holder on the back of the operator’s glove.

Crown’s QuickPick Remote Advance system is the first of its kind in the industry. It uses task automating technologies to simplify workflow and improve the picking process, increasing productivity and reducing operator fatigue.
