The Raymond Corp., in collaboration with Seegrid Corp., has introduced the Raymond Courier 3020 tow tractor automated lift truck. Towing up to 10,000 pounds, the Raymond Courier 3020 combines Seegrid's expertise in automation with Raymond's end-to-end warehouse solutions.
"Raymond Courier automated lift trucks use Raymond's patented rPort technology, which allows for an open architecture with a standardized interface. The result is a standard Raymond lift truck with both man-on and man-off automated functionality for handling peak loading needs," said Chris Merta, product manager of automated products at The Raymond Corp. "Designed with flexibility in mind, the Raymond Courier automated lift trucks are equipped with Seegrid's Vision technology for automated guidance, and its ergonomic design and arch shape enhance operator performance."
The Raymond Courier 3020 features the Raymond ACR System, which delivers longer battery life with precise speed control, less downtime, and reduced cost of ownership. With the addition of the iWarehouse fleet management system, customers gain even greater visibility into their automated and manual mixed fleets. Time in automated mode (man-off) versus manual mode (man-on) is measured and reported through iWarehouse and can be compared to entirely manual vehicles to ensure optimal usage of each type of vehicle.
iWarehouse, in conjunction with Seegrid's Supervisor software, provides a robust tracking and reporting of mixed-technology fleets in the industry, optimizing uptime by reporting unit status of the combined fleet. Seegrid's Supervisor software provides an intuitive yet robust business rule framework for easily integrating automation into existing operational systems.
Raymond automated lift trucks are sold, supported, and serviced by The Raymond Corporation and its entire network of more than 100 authorized Sales and Service Centers, which offer customers local support and service.
