What is optimal shipping pick & pack system

Can anyone suggest an optimal layout for a pick & pack operation in a shipping warehouse? Does it make sense for each worker to build a box, pick the items, pack them, tape up the box, and label it, or is some kind of assembly line operation better? The typical number of items is around 5, and they are picked mostly from about 10-20 most popular items. I'm thinking of a five-person operation for assembly: 1. Build boxes and provide next person in line with right size box for the particular order. 2. Pack bigger/heavier items which are near this person 3. Pack medium size items which are near this person 4. Pack small items which are near this person 5. Seal boxes and label

Information on Shipping Large Items & the Best Rates

I have a few large items that i would like to sell on eBay however the shipping charges are way to high, this is not due to weight but due to dimensional size. ie. 30" x 30" x 26" high or another item is a pair of speakers which are approx 50 lbs each and 20" x 24" x 34". The cost of shipping these items makes it impossible to sell them on eBay and get what they are worth. I hope some of you savvy sellers and shippers can help me out with this problem, i have many vintage items that are large and too expensive to ship via UPS, FedEx or Dhl. Thanks
