White Logistics partners with HVS for hydrogen fuel cell truck trial

Hydrogen Vehicle Systems (HVS) has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with White Logistics to explore the integration of Hydrogen Fuel Cell HGVs into the firm’s fleet.  

This partnership marks the beginning of a decarbonisation journey to net zero, providing White Logistics with trial vehicles to test the adoption of HVS’s hydrogen fuel cell HGVs on its fleet. The MOA will enable White Logistics to collaborate with HVS on all aspects of hydrogen electric vehicle technology, hydrogen infrastructure and refuelling equipment and share operational data that will ensure a successful trial introduction.

With a fleet of over 150 delivery vehicles and trailers, of which over 90 are heavy trucks, White Logistics has been providing comprehensive warehouse, storage and logistics solutions to businesses nationwide for over 50 years. From their base in the heart of Worcestershire close to the motorway network, White’s is committed to driving sustainable initiatives that decrease their carbon footprint and that of their customers and subcontractors.  

Graeme White, Chief Executive Officer for White Logistics, said:

“We pride ourselves on our modern fleet that is optimised for mileage and environmental efficiencies whilst always meeting the needs of our customers. As we look to the future, White Logistics will again be at the forefront of available vehicle technology. We are exploring the latest developments in alternative fuels and are very excited about working with HVS to understand how Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles will support us in our net zero ambitions.” 

John McLeister, Chief Commercial Officer at HVS, commented:

“White Logistics’ decarbonisation vision aligns perfectly with our own and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Graeme and his team to integrate our hydrogen fuel cell HGVs into their vehicle fleet. We are passionate about helping the road haulage industry to decarbonise faster and look forward to providing the solutions that will help transition the White’s fleet to zero.”
