Slot Capacities

Overview

The Skublox Hub App allows you to seamlessly manage your slots and assign capacities. Configure the volume of each slot to effectively sort orders with multiple products or discover ideal placements for larger-sized items.

When setting a capacity, you can choose between the following volume units:

  • Cubic inches
  • Cubic feet
  • Cubic centimeters
  • Liters
Based on the capacity, Skublox will try to find the most suitable slot for a given order without disrupting your sorting flow.
When assembling your wall, we recommend assigning smaller slots with smaller capacities at the top, as lighter items are easier to lift.
