Raymond to sell K. Hartwell products

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

The Raymond Corporation will be selling a variety of K.Hartwall solutions, including tow-trains, carts, foldable cages and more in the United States and Canada.

The latest addition is the K.Hartwall LiftLiner tow-train system. It is compatible with the Raymond 8610 tow tractor or Raymond Courier 3020 and 3220 automated tow tractor models. This tow-train is compact with a patented steering system, offering a tight turn radius and high maneuverability in very narrow aisles.

The LiftLiner solution handles up to 2,200 pounds (1,000 kg) with a three-second lift. With special tilting technology and the capability to load and unload different sized carts from both sides without the need to sequence, this operator-friendly, lean logistics solution helps streamline processes to reduce handling costs.

“The addition of the LiftLiner tow-train offering showcases Raymond and its extensive network of Solutions and Support Centers commitment to bringing innovative, end-to-end solutions to businesses of all sizes,” said Dave Norton, vice-president of customer solutions and support, The Raymond Corporation.

“We are always looking for new intralogistics solutions to help businesses drive continuous improvement, optimize their operations and support their ever-changing needs.”

K.Hartwall is a family-owned company founded 90 years ago in Söderkulla, Finland. They build returnable load carriers, tow-trains, and autonomous mobile robots for customers on all five continents and in more than 65 countries. The company has specialized in logistics solutions for the retail, postal and parcel, and automotive industries. The company counts 250 employees and has annual turnover of US$100 million.

“The partnership strengthens both of our businesses by widening our reach and product range to offer better services to customers in North America,” said K.Hartwall CEO Jerker Hartwall.
