Oil rose on Thursday, a day after hitting 10-month lows, but market sentiment remained negative because the global crude glut has persisted despite OPEC-led output cuts. Brent crude futures (LCOc1) ended 40 cents higher to $45.22 a barrel, after falling as low as $44.53. U.S. crude futures (CLc1) ended up 21 cents a barrel at $42.74 a barrel.

The “Everyday Heroes” Kenworth T680 was auctioned off for charity to Phoenix-based J&L Transportation, netting 89,000 for the Truckers Against Trafficking non-profit group.

Truckers Against Trafficking’s mission is to stop human trafficking by educating, mobilizing and empowering truck drivers and rest stop employees. The $89,000 donation is the largest in the non-profit’s history. The Everyday Heroes truck auction was spearheaded by the Inland Kenworth dealership.

“This culminated an 8-month project that had a tremendous finish,” said Don Blake, Inland Kenworth’s new truck sales manager in the Phoenix area. “Our sponsors came together to donate and discount their pricing in order for us to build the Everyday Heroes Kenworth T680. I was on pins and needles as the auction and bidding took place, and was so happy that the truck was going to a local company that demonstrated its commitment to such a worthy cause.”

The Kenworth T680, fully loaded with a 76-inch sleeper, 485-hp Paccar MX-13 engine, and Eaton Fuller Advantage 10-speed automated transmission, joins 35 other trucks in the J&L Transportation fleet. The truck will be placed in J&L’s dedicated fleet and used in Arizona, California, and Nevada.

“Though I have not encountered human trafficking, it does exist in our world,” said Mike Jimenez, owner of J&L Transportation. “It’s been my experience that when our industry gets behind a cause, it is a worthwhile cause. When Don expressed his interest, along with Inland Kenworth and all the other supporters and sponsors intent on doing this project, I knew J&L should be a part of the answer to end such heartbreaking events.”

According to Kendis Paris, TAT’s executive director, human trafficking is an industry estimated to be worth $32 billion in the United States alone, and $150 billion globally. To further its education, TAT has the Freedom Driver’s Project …Read the rest of this story
