    Streamline Workflows. Increase Productivity.


    The Raymond Advance Operator Assist technology minimizes the pick cycle time by allowing the operator to remotely command the truck to travel tractor-first in an aisle between picks.

            + Increases efficiency by optimizing operator picking position from pick-to-pick
            + Reduces operator physical demands by minimizing truck mounts and dismounts


    *Productivity increases are generated from simulation and are not guaranteed and actual gain may vary based on multiple factors including but not limited to the type of product being picked, operator experience, number of picks per aisle and aisle length. Assumptions: Operator walking speed: 3 mph, Distance between picks: 40 ft, Avg. pick per pallet: 40, Avg. pick time: 5 sec, Aisle length: 400 ft.

    In-Aisle Navigation and Obstacle Detection

    When the truck travels in the tractor-first direction, a Laser Sensor Unit and three fields of detection help navigate the truck and detect obstacles in its path to minimize impacts and product damage.

    + Operator can select either side of an aisle to navigate, and the truck will keep a predetermined distance from the rack

    + Operator is always in control and can override the tracking function at any time
