The Raymond Corporation has introduced the Raymond Courier 3220 Automated Tow Tractor. Towing up to 15,000 pounds, the Raymond Courier 3220 combines vision-guided technology with a heavy-duty towing capacity.

This model comes with a low clearance arch as a standard design, making it easy to maneuver through areas with low overhanging structures. With increased towing and ramp grade capacity, this automated guided vehicle offers superior productivity for indoor towing applications.

“The addition of the Raymond Courier 3220 to our line of AGVs showcases our drive for continuous improvement. This model offers higher towing capacity and more ramp capability, resulting in an ability to handle peak loading needs,” said Tiger Xu, product manager of automated products at Raymond.

Raymond Courier trucks require no infrastructure changes or business interruption to setup. Trucks can be operational from day one.

Vision-guided technology allows for easy implementation as routes can easily be programmed and reprogrammed quickly and as needed. Routes can be quickly transferred between trucks. Trucks can be quickly added or redeployed to different facilities, locations, shifts or applications. 

An intuitive operator interface allows for quick, easy route teaching and truck dispatching. 

With the addition of the iWAREHOUSE fleet management and warehouse optimization system, customers gain even greater visibility into their automated and manual mixed fleets. iWAREHOUSE provides a robust enterprise wide view of an operation, tracking and reporting equipment and assets across multiple facilities and regions.

The Courier 3220 joins a fleet of three additional Courier AGVs.
