The Courier 3030 automated stacker, which can be used in both automated and manual operation modes, combines horizontal transport and vertical pallet lift with a 72-inch reach capacity and a 2,500-pound load capacity, making it ideal for pickup/drop-off, end-of-aisle and end-of-line application, as well as conveyor picking. In addition, the Supervisor software of the Courier 3030 enables an operator to simultaneously monitor and manage multiple trucks from a mobile or web-enabled computer.
The Courier 3030 utilizes unique to the industry Seegrid vision-guided technology to capture a 360-degree view of its surroundings while providing the ability to map locations, identify obstructions and control vehicle behaviors. When integrated with the Raymond iWAREHOUSE® warehouse optimization system, any web-enabled device can deliver real-time location and status updates, providing data-driven insights into a facility’s operations. The innovative technology frees operators from repetitive, low value tasks to provide maximum productivity and efficiency throughout warehouse, distribution and supply chain operations.
