Happy Thanksgiving from everyone here at UWT!

Along with getting all the Thanksgiving food to the retail stores, truckers transport all those Black Friday deals across the nation. Without them, there would be no Black Friday! Not only do truck drivers need to transport all these items to the store on time, they will also need to transport all the items that are purchased on Cyber Monday. And the week after Black Friday generates yet another $2 billion in online sales alone.  All that commerce is possible because of truck drivers. It’s a very busy time for the trucking industry!

So, this Thanksgiving, when you’re enjoying your meal and browsing the great deals at your favorite store, remember that it wouldn’t be possible without the trucking industry. Give thanks to the truck drivers out there. If you bought it, they brought it 🙂

And to honor them this Black Friday, we picked our top 5 deals we think any driver would enjoy, perfect to pick up now in time for Christmas:

  1. Battery power bank ($25.49) – a great gift for someone who is always on the road. This battery power bank can charge 2 devices at once and has a built-in flashlight for emergencies!
  2. Portable speaker ($59.99) – this speaker has a waterproof rating and rugged housing to provide the ultimate protection; it also has voice-assistant integration lets you access Siri or Google Now from a mobile device. Connect to two devices simultaneously with this JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth speaker for alternating playback!
  3. Lunch kit ($24.99) – while not on sale, this bag is at a great price! This is a great gift for any trucker, especially those who like to pack their own food while on the road (which is often a way healthier alternative). It features a dual compartment and is made of heavy-duty fabric that’s also water repellant.
  4. Bluetooth noise cancelling headphones ($199.99) – these top-rated headphones are a fan favorite. They have a Pure Adaptive Noise Canceling feature filters ambient sounds to reduce distractions, and Fast Fuel technology delivers up to three hours of play with just 10 minutes of charging. Perfect for rest time, watching movies or listening to music while not driving.
  5. Travel Mug ($26.24) – this 30oz tumbler is sure to keep your coffee hot until your next stop! It fits perfectly in vehicle cup holders and boasts double-wall insulation with a 18/8 stainless steel body.

We wish all our US friends a safe, happy and healthy long weekend filled with great food and some quality family time; we are grateful to each one of you for your continued support.
