The Raymond Corporation, in collaboration with Seegrid Corporation, introduces the Raymond Courier 3020 tow tractor automated lift truck. This new truck is designed to automate horizontal towing in a number of operations. Towing up to 10,000 pounds, the Raymond Courier 3020 combines Seegrid’s expertise in automation with Raymond’s end-to-end warehouse solutions and lift truck proficiency.

“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.

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, users gain 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 with entirely manual vehicles to ensure optimal usage of each type of vehicle.

iWAREHOUSE, in conjunction with Seegrid’s Supervisor software, supplies robust tracking and reporting of mixed-technology fleets, 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.
