GREENE, N.Y., May 8, 2019 — The Raymond Corporation has launched a new, next-generation automated lift truck stacker, the Raymond Courier™ 3030 stacker, which utilizes Seegrid vision-guided technology and combines horizontal transport and vertical pallet lift. Supporting Raymond's introduction of intelligent warehouse solutions, the Courier 3030 stacker is designed to automate stacking from pick to delivery locations.
Ideal for handling and transporting products between connected manufacturing and warehouse facilities, the Courier 3030 stacker automated lift truck helps maximize workforce productivity and drive down labor costs. With a second-level vertical reach capability of up to 72 inches and a weight capacity of 2,500 pounds, the automated stacker is ideal for pickup/drop-off, end-of-aisle and end-of-line applications, as well as conveyor picking.
"Warehouses are constantly driven to address industry challenges like rising labor costs and workflow management. It can be easy to overlook the need to optimize operations before turning to automation," said Michael Field, CEO, The Raymond Corporation. "The Courier 3030 stacker was built with flexibility and versatility in mind to address customer challenges in the supply chain and logistics industries. Leading-edge technology like the Courier 3030 stacker helps keep customers' operations functioning at higher efficiency and productivity levels in an on-demand world that is always on."
The Courier 3030 stacker is able to transport different pallet sizes and types. Additionally, the reverse-motion and auto-engagement functions optimize workflow and increase productivity, helping warehouses work better and more efficiently. With the help of the Courier 3030 stacker, workflow is shared between man and machine — allowing more time for forklift operators to learn additional, more engaging skill sets.
"For nearly a decade, Seegrid and Raymond have strategically partnered to combine Seegrid's market-leading expertise in automation with Raymond's end-to-end warehouse solutions and lift truck proficiency," said Jeff Christensen, vice president of product, Seegrid. "Seegrid's powerful and proven Vision technology enables vehicles like the Raymond Courier 3030 to autonomously solve the biggest challenges in manufacturing, distribution and e-commerce fulfillment to create real value for customers."
