The Quick Delivery was introduced in September 1982 as a walk-through van. Specially developed to satisfy a parcel delivery company's request for "a van in which delivery men could work standing up," the vehicle came in two models, the Hiace Quick Delivery (with a payload capacity of 1.25 tons) and the Toyoace Walk-through Van (1.5 tons).

The Hiace Quick Delivery utilized the low-floor chassis of the Hiace Just Low, on which a tall 1-box van body was mounted. As a result, a 1,785 mm tall cargo room was created with walk-through access to the driver's seat. The sliding side doors improved work efficiency in tight spaces, and the left door also gave easy access to the driver's seat. The Hiace Quick Delivery later changed its model name to Quick Delivery 100. The Toyoace Walk-through Van used the front body of the Toyoace Aluminum Van without modification, while connecting the cabin with the cargo room to allow walk-through access. The height of the cargo room was 1,800 mm.

In December 1985, the 2-ton Dyna Quick Delivery and Toyoace Quick Delivery were added to the lineup. Their body types were the same as that of the Hiace Quick Delivery, although they were both a size larger. These 2-ton models later changed their names to Quick Delivery 200. A 4-wheel-drive model was added in October 1987.
Plant Honsha plant, Araco Corporation(now TOYOTA BOSHOKU CORPORATION)
So named because the delivery van provided walkthrough access to the cargo area to speed up delivery.
