A Flipboard Magazine Built for Life on the Road

MagMaker / March 6, 2014


This is United Van Lines Driver Kelly Dubue. He’s reading Mobile Trucking Magazine in the cab of his truck while waiting to unload a shipment at a warehouse in Ottawa, Canada.

We’ve written about the ways professionals can use Flipboard magazines to share news about industry topics and trends. Mobile Trucking Magazine does just that, although it was created for a group of professionals who seldom set foot in a traditional office environment: Long-haul truck drivers.

Mobile Trucking is a new magazine curated by Dale Booth, VP of Operations for the Boyd Group of Companies, a Canadian moving and storage firm. He reached out to tell us why he launched it:

The magazine is geared towards truck drivers. It gives drivers a chance to read industry-related articles and view images from other truckers during down-time while on the road.

You don’t have to be a trucker to appreciate the creativity that went into the making of Dale’s magazine. Just click on the cover and hit the road:
