New terminal is Musket’s 23rd with additional locations planned for 2023
Houston, June 8, 2023 – Musket Corp., the trading and logistics arm of the Love’s Family of Companies, recently opened a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) terminal in Taunton, Massachusetts. This is the company's 23rd facility in the United States and the first of several new DEF terminals slated to open this year.
The terminal has a dedicated rail spur and 525,000 gallons of storage capacity that will provide 24/7/365 reliable access to DEF for all customers in the northeast region, including Love’s Travel Stops. 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.

"Taunton expands Musket’s DEF footprint providing necessary supply redundancy to support wholesale distributors, retail outlets and commercial truck drivers throughout the region. Musket DEF terminals not only provide reliable supply, but also reduce empty miles in a challenging transportation market.”
