100 public sector fleets subscribe to DEF Tracker pricing index

Christopher Goodfellow - 11 December 2012

Integer Research has confirmed that over 100 public sector fleets have registered for their Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) price tracking index, DEF Tracker, following a nationwide campaign.

Public sector subscribers include government, state and municipal fleets. DEF Tracker has welcomed subscribers from a number of U.S. states, including New York, Florida, Texas and California, and Qu├ębec and Ontario, in Canada.

Monica Baker, Emissions Research Manager at Integer Research, said: "DEF Tracker provides independent and accurate monthly price references for DEF in the fleets' specific geographies, reflecting real market transactions and the real costs involved in the supply chain.

"It is fantastic to see interest from public fleets so early on in this campaign. We believe that this service will play an important role in encouraging price transparency within the market."

Doug Haugh, President, Mansfield Oil Company, a national DEF supplier, said: "It is important, as volumes increase, that we do not rely on a NOLA [New Orleans, LA] urea index that does not represent the costs involved in the DEF business and therefore leaves both buyers and sellers exposed to unnecessary risk."

Purchasing professionals can use the service as a reference to better understand how the market is evolving in their area.

A complimentary sample of the service can be requested by emailing publications@integer-research.com, and quoting 'Free Tracker DD' in the subject line.

DEF Tracker publishes monthly market pricing for full truck loads and less than truck load bulk deliveries, tote refills and 2.5G jugs for a wide range of pricing hubs, as well as DEF pump prices in every U.S. state and Canadian province offering the facility, backed by solid analysis from industry experts.
