Superior Productivity And Operator Proficiency
With skilled operators in short supply and inexperienced employees covering seasonal demands, lift truck operations in wire guided, very narrow aisle applications need to be as simple as possible to maximize productivity and minimize impacts and damage. Raymond's Zoning and Positioning options allows operators to focus on their surroundings and the task at hand instead of searching for locations, so they learn more quickly, execute more accurately, and work more efficiently.
Zoning ensures more consistent and reliable truck operation by controlling, restricting, and defining certain truck parameters and behaviors, including travel speed and lift height, at precise locations in specific aisles allowing your trucks to adapt to:
+ Varying ceiling heights
+ Pedestrian cross walks or end-of-aisle stop/slow
+ Restricted or safety zones
+ No entry areas or enforced one-way travel
+ Racking irregularities
+ Congested areas
By coordinating a truck's lift height and speed with a pre-programmed map of your facility, positioning capabilities allow your trucks to minimize travel time by always taking the optimal route between storage locations. With a faster, smoother path to the next task, positioning can:
+ Accelerate the proficiency timeline of new or inexperienced operators
+ Improve picking speed, efficiency, and process flow without compromising accuracy
+ Minimize impacts and facility damage
Compatible Forklift Models
Nowhere are the benefits of zoning and positioning felt more strongly than in very narrow aisle applications. By ensuring your order pickers and swing reach trucks are in exactly the right location as quickly as possible, from one slot to the next, Raymond's Zoning and Positioning solutions offer faster pick rates and pallet movements for superior productivity.

Optimization Before Automation
The era of automation is here, ready to keep your business productive and competitive. But organizations need to rethink before they retool. Prior to the introduction of any automated system, your warehouse and processes should first be analyzed and optimized. We can help lay the groundwork for a successful implementation by presenting our Lean Management System and evaluating different aspects of your operation, including labor utilization and operator productivity, size and type of your lift truck fleet, and traffic patterns and bottlenecks in your workflow.
