DEF Tracker adds new Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) pricing references

Laura Cross - 3 July 2012

DEF Tracker has added Montreal, QC, and Tampa, FL, listings to its Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) price information service for the North American market. DEF Tracker now includes end-user pricing for full and less-than-full truck load bulk deliveries, totes and packaged products for eight price hubs.

Christopher Goodfellow, a market analyst with Integer Research, the publisher of DEF Tracker, said: "The latest price data shows Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is strongly affected by volatile raw material costs. A sharp upward movement in the price of urea between February and May resulted in increasing DEF prices during H1 2012."

Findings from the June edition of DEF Tracker include:

  • The price of urea staged a sharp reversal in June and the cost of larger bulk deliveries (1,000-4,000 gallons) of DEF to fleets dropped across the references included in DEF Tracker in response. However, the effect on tote pricing was more diverse, with average prices moving by between -$0.01 and $0.03 per gallon in the U.S., and -$0.03 and $0.01 per gallon in Canada
  • The average U.S. DEF pump price increased by seven cent, to $2.88 per gallon, in June. This trend means the price has increased by $0.15 to $2.88 per gallon between February and June, 2012, in response to raw material costs
  • The number of truck stops offering bulk DEF at the pump is increasing rapidly, with 37 new locations coming online over the last four weeks, bringing the total to 539

DEF Tracker is a monthly subscription service which gives DEF price references for full truck load and less than full truck load bulk deliveries, tote refills and packaged products, and pump prices in every U.S. state and Canadian province offering the facility. Pricing data is accompanied by analysis from industry experts. For more information and to sign up to the service see Integer Research's home page.
