Love’s Family of Companies announced July 12 that its trading and logistics arm, Musket Corp., has opened its first diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) terminal in Alabama.

Musket, which specializes in commodity supply and logistics across North America, said the terminal — located in the town of Theodore near Mobile — has dedicated startup capacity of 2 million gallons of throughput per month. It will be open year-round and is the company’s 24th such terminal.

“We are excited to open our first DEF terminal in Alabama,” said Dave Michael, general manager of DEF at 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 facility will support bulk DEF demand as well as packaged goods ranging from 330-gallon intermediate bulk containers to 2½-gallon jugs. Musket has similar terminals across 18 states. Plymouth, Minn., is on the company’s radar as another location to open this summer, with additional terminals being planned by the end of 2023.

“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,” Michael said.
