Musket Corp., the trading a logistics arm of Love's, has opened four new bulk DEF facilities across the United States, located in Aurora, CO; Quakertown, PA; Lebanon, TN; and El Paso, TX.
“These strategically placed DEF racks give our Customers 24/7 access to a high-quality product,” said Brian Hoover, manager of DEF for Musket. “Each site is selected based on demand from customers at nearby Love’s locations and third-party wholesale customers, combined with the lack of DEF production infrastructure to support the growing market. These new facilities allow us to effectively supply the stores with DEF and provide a much needed redundancy of supply.”
DEF has been available at the pump alongside diesel at all Love’s Travel Stop locations nationwide since 2010. Musket began producing DEF in 2014 to address increasing market demand, supply redundancy concerns and logistical optimization opportunities.
The opening of these four terminals brings the number of DEF locations for Musket to 12. All facilities are located close to Love’s Travel Stops to efficiently provide 24/7 access to DEF.
Musket DEF locations: Kingman, AZ; Salt Lake City, UT; Morrow, GA; Big Spring, TX; Alorton, IL.; Aurora, CO.; Louisville, KY.; Quakertown, PA.; Albuquerque, NM; Lebanon, TN.; Memphis, TN.; El Paso, TX.
