A system and method for prioritizing orders in a specific sequence in a fulfillment queue is disclosed. The system scans and groups the orders in the fulfillment queue according to zip code into a plurality of groups. The system then prioritizes the order in the fulfillment queue based on number of orders present in the plurality of groups. The system processes the orders present in the prioritized group and the processed orders are then palletized. The method creates fulfillment logic for same-day delivery and prioritizes the orders in a specific sequence in the fulfillment queue. Carriers can spend less time on sortation, dispatch their orders earlier in the day, and more orders can be delivered on-time.
