The Raymond Corp. has introduced a series of Raymond Reach-Fork trucks integrated with technologies and telematics for a better operator experience and increased warehouse productivity. Designed to enhance performance and productivity, Raymond Reach-Fork trucks are engineered with fewer parts and more durable components with lift, lower, acceleration, and travel speeds. With a wide choice of operator stance options, Raymond's Reach-Fork trucks have precise control with an intuitive single-axis control handle, suspension, and stability system. The single display eliminates the need for multiple screens in the compartment. Having one consolidated display enhances the operator's overall experience.

The series of Reach-Fork trucks have been adapted for today's warehouses, the company says, and all technological capabilities are fully integrated with the Raymond ACR System. The multifunction color touch-screen display is an information center for the scalable telematics solution, iWarehouse Evolution. The display includes all truck data from truck speed to battery state of charge, and optional technologies, including height-tilt indicator, and the Vantage Point camera to help the operator. To help technicians, this display showcases fault codes and diagnostic information to aid in troubleshooting. This display allows users to electronically turn on functions and capabilities as they're needed. As business needs change, Raymond says, this scalable platform evolves with the customer, so efficiency and productivity can continuously be improved while also identifying opportunities to reduce costs.

"We are thrilled to be the first to market with an integrated technology and telematics solution," said Michael Field, chief executive officer for The Raymond Corp, in a statement. "Helping make our customers' operations more efficient is always our focus when launching new products. Now, it's easier than ever to give our customers a single scalable telematics solution that improves productivity and operator experience."
