Brenntag North America Adds Diesel Exhaust Fluid Resources to Toronto Location

Brenntag, the world's largest distributor of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), recently expanded DEF capabilities at their Toronto, Ontario location by adding a dedicated DEF tanker to their existing fleet, and opening a DEF rail terminal.

The dedicated Brenntag tanker is equipped with a customized pump and a Canadian weights and measures certified meter, providing for fast filling, quality assurance and security of supply. Using dedicated tankers, distributors as well as end users will receive DEF into bulk tanks or totes from Brenntag.

Adding dedicated tankers to the DEF fleet offers increased efficiency and further enhances Brenntag’s already expansive distribution network. Brenntag continues to position additional resources at their more than 140 stocking locations to accommodate the DEF market’s rapid growth in both the US and Canada. Operating a private truck fleet consisting of over 700 power units in the US, and servicing Canada from coast to coast, increases Brenntag’s presence as the leader in number of delivery vehicles servicing DEF customers in North America.
