What is Batch Optimization & Batch Processing?
E-commerce companies and delivery platforms receive hundreds of customer orders in a single day. Every order needs to be shipped, dispatched, and delivered to customers as per the timeline mentioned during order placement. In the backend, logistics managers segregate orders based on various criteria — delivery location, premium subscribers, same-day delivery, next-day delivery, closeby orders, distant dispatches, and so on. These different categories are called batches. Orders in the same batch are packaged, shipped, and moved for delivery simultaneously.
Batch optimization or batch processing is the use of technology to automate manual batching processes, allowing businesses to process orders according to unique business needs within minimal time, and with less human intervention and great accuracy.
