Canadian bulk DEF network surpasses 100 locations

Ben Treadwell - 11 May 2015

There are now 103 truck stops locations in Canada that are equipped with bulk DEF pumps. The Canadian network has grown rapidly since the first pumps opened in 2011, and infrastructure is still continuing to develop. Ontario and Alberta hold the largest number of fully equipped bulk locations in the country, with 58% of all Canadian DEF pumps operating in these provinces. Recently there has also been significant growth in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec and New Brunswick which all hold noteworthy infrastructure. There continues to be limited infrastructure in the Eastern Maritime Provinces, and there is yet to be any bulk infrastructure in any of Canada's territories.
