In the last three months, independent truckstops and small truckstop brands have developed their DEF pump infrastructure at an impressive rate. 16% of all equipped DEF pump sites in North America are operated by independent truckstops or smaller brands, compared to 14% in July and 11% at the beginning of this year.
discoverDEF recently added 16 independently-owned truckstops equipped with DEF at the pump that come under the U.S.-wide brand Roady's. Roady's describes itself as the national truck stop brand of independent truckstops, and its sites offering DEF at the pump operate in states ranging from California and Oregon to South Carolina and Ohio.
Speedway has also expanded considerably since June, when its first location was brought online. It now has sixteen sites offering DEF at the pump, half of which were added in the last two months.
Of the major truckstop brands, Pilot Flying J continues to expand at a fast rate, having added 44 pumps to its network since July. However, TA Travel Centers and Love's Travel Stops have slowed their rate of installation.
