TMI'S New Guide-Pro Truck Lights Increase Loading Dock Safety
Pittsburgh, PA, - TMI, LLC’s newest dock safety solution, Guide-Pro Truck Lights, make it easier for trucks to align and safely back into loading docks. Guide-Pro Truck Lights complement TMI’s extensive dock light product line.
Guide-Pro Truck Lights provide a sharp visual guide for truck drivers by illuminating the dock face. By utilizing this visual reference, truck drivers can safely align the dock face in their mirrors, preventing crooked entry and overrunning-the-dock mishaps. The lights give drivers visibility they wouldn’t otherwise have.
“They make [lining a truck up in] a tough double-inside dock much easier,” said Tony Cigna, a seasoned FedEx Freight driver and one of the first to utilize TMI’s Guide-Pro Loading Dock Guide Lights. “Any driver who backs into inside docks knows you are blind for a good part of the backing process. Whether it’s bright sunshine outside or dark, these lights make a huge difference,” Cigna said.
