How the Raymond Courier 3020 Tow Tractor Works

As space gets more confined and labor costs continue to rise, Raymond is committed to providing the automated solutions you need to optimize warehousing operations in the years ahead.

Raymond has taken its industry-leading tow tractor design and engineered it for manual or automated operation. This hybrid design gives operators the flexibility to program the truck to run on its own, or operate it manually as a traditional tow tractor. It’s like getting the best of both worlds in a world-class vehicle that can work the way you want for maximum productivity.

With easy implementation, ease of operation, and remote management capabilities, the Raymond Courier tugger VGV offers the perfect entry point into automation for an array of warehouse, distribution, and manufacturing facilities.
