Snapshots: A librarian’s dream

Snapshots is an occasional series on the Skiviez blog with pictures that depict scenes from the day-to-day inner workings of Skiviez.

People ask us how we can ship hundreds of orders per day with fewer people than you can count on one hand.

Here’s how:

It may look like chaos–unrelated product sizes and colors are shelved right next to one another–but rest assured that each SKU has its own shelf location documented in our inventory system.

Our wireless order picker just tells us which shelf location to go to–there’s no need to know what product we’re even trying to pick! Like a card catalog, it’s very efficient, and it’s the principal reason why an order can go from placed to shipped in less than five minutes at Skiviez.

    Very neat and orderly. Now, where do you keep the models? :)

  2. You guys rock! That’s why 90% of my underwear come from you. Thanks!
