Kitting

kitting

Kitting is an essential process in fulfilment that involves gathering individual items together to create a ready-to-ship ‘kit’. This process is used in industries such as retail, manufacturing, and e-commerce, as it allows for efficient packaging and shipping of items that are often sold or used together.

The Kitting Process

The kitting process typically involves several steps:

  1. The items that make up the kit are identified, and a list is created.
  2. The items are then located and gathered from the warehouse.
  3. Once all items are collected, they are packaged together and prepared for shipment.

It’s important to note that the kitting process can vary depending on the specific requirements of the business or the product.

Kitting Vs. Assembly

While kitting is often confused with assembly, the two processes are distinct. Kitting involves grouping related items together for shipment, while assembly involves putting together components to create a final product. In some cases, businesses may utilise both processes. For example, an electronics company might use kitting to group a device, its charger, and a user manual together, and assembly to put together the device itself.
