Mid-September marked a big step in the right direction for our DEF business in Minnesota with the addition of a dedicated DEF trailer. Having the ability to buy and pick-up in bulk has enabled us to offer our customers a more efficient level of service and increase our route capacities.
In the past, DEF was delivered off our dual-delivery units via totes. These DEF totes were taking up a large portion of the available trailer space and the driver’s time with moving totes and stingers throughout the day. Deliveries made off the dual delivery trailers were pumped via a DEF cart at approximately 35 gallons minute vs the new trailer at 60 gallons per minute…. Almost double!
With the new unit, we have already adjusted our routes to be able to deliver a 5,200-gallon load to an entire market area in a 9-hour period. Previously these stops wouldn’t have all fit on one trailer, making deliveries take longer. Improvements like these will allows us to continue to deliver TOCS to our customers. At Parman Energy, we are always seeking ways to improve the level of service we can provide to our customers. We are looking forward to expanding our DEF business in the MN area with fast and reliable delivery!
