Musket Corp. opens Alabama diesel exhaust fluid terminal
Facility marks 24th location and 18th state for the company
Houston, July 12, 2023 – Musket Corp., the trading and logistics arm of the Love’s Family of Companies, recently opened its 24th diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) terminal in Theodore, Alabama. The DEF terminal has a dedicated start-up capacity of 2 million gallons of throughput per month. It will provide 24/7/365 convenient and reliable access to DEF for its customers, including Love’s Travel Stops in the Gulf region.
Musket’s Theodore facility will support bulk diesel exhaust fluid demand as well as packaged goods ranging from 330-gallon IBCs to 2.5-gallon jugs. The company's DEF terminals use best-in-class quality control procedures, manufacturing the highest-quality product adhering to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 22241 standards.
"We are excited to open our first DEF terminal in Alabama,” said Dave Michael, general manager of DEF for Musket. “The Mobile market was specifically identified as needing a stable DEF supply solution both to improve local supply economics as well as maximize logistical efficiencies throughout the Gulf Coast supply chain. The Theodore facility allows Musket to expand its DEF footprint by providing supply options to support wholesale distributors, retail outlets and commercial truck drivers, including Gemini Motor Transport that supplies Love's Travel Stops throughout the region.”
Conveniently located DEF terminals not only provide reliable supply for customer needs, but also help protect their assets by reducing time on the road and wear and tear on heavy-duty vehicles. Musket currently has 24 terminals across 18 states with plans for Plymouth, Minnesota, this summer and additional locations by the end of 2023.
Musket is one of the largest trading and supply companies in the U.S. and specializes in commodity supply and logistics across North America. Headquartered in Houston, Musket also has a footprint in Oklahoma and Europe, employing more than 250 people.
