Job Description for Order Filler
An order filler plays a key role in logistics and shipping operations as part of a business that sends goods to customers. This person receives customer orders and then works to prepare and package them for pick-up by the shipper or customer, or for direct loading into a company-owned shipping pipeline. In large warehouse operations, the order filler may work with warehouse pickers to gather goods to prepare them for shipping. In smaller operations, the order filler may be involved in both picking the proper goods from warehouse storage and preparing them for prompt shipment.Read More...
Typically, an order filler receives a batch of customer orders through a computer report or readout; then, they either carefully pick these items or post them for warehouse pickers to select. As each order is gathered, the order filler carefully checks part and item numbers for a match and then packages the goods according to company policies. Typically, the order filler also prints mailing labels and printed postage or prepaid meter labels as required by an outside shipper.
Order fillers must be able to work quickly and with a great deal of organization. Outgoing orders may need to be sorted by destination or shipping media. For most companies, formal education is less important than warehouse experience and the ability to meet physical requirements for the position. Order fillers work in a warehouse and shipping environment, and they may work during regular business hours; however, many larger companies operate warehouses in shifts that require order fillers to be available for evenings and overnight work as necessary.
