EXCLUSIVE: All Pilot Flying J truck stops to offer bulk DEF in 2013

William Irwin - 7 September 2012

Pilot Flying J plans to offer Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) at all its truck stops by the end of 2013. Initially, the company plans to expand its DEF distribution to 375 locations by the end of 2012. In 2013 it will then add bulk DEF to its whole network - approximately 525 truck stops.

Matt Price, Pilot's DEF Procurement Manager, told discoverDEF.com: "Pilot Flying J's mission to provide the customer with convenient, cost effective and accessible DEF at the pump continues to be the driving force behind a growing network of locations and lanes."

Pilot has previously held off from promising a date for DEF supply at all truck stops, while Love's confirmed in 2011 that it plans to offer bulk DEF at all of its locations by the end of 2012. Thomas M O'Brien, CEO of TA Travel Centers, also said in a quarterly earnings call on August 7th that "by the end of 2012, [TA Travel Centers] will have bulk DEF available in all our company operated sites."

Love's currently offers DEF at 158 of its 234 locations and TA Travel Stops currently has DEF at 103 stops in its network.
