Building up an FCEV fleet
DB Schenker is gradually building up a hydrogen-powered fleet of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in partnership with leasing start-up Hylane. Hylane is part of DEVK and specialises in providing comprehensive hydrogen solutions in the logistics sector.
The fuel cell trucks will be produced in Groningen, the Netherlands, on the premises of Hyzon, a manufacturer of hydrogen-powered trucks. Hylane is scheduled to hand over the first vehicle to DB Schenker by the end of 2022.
DB Schenker plans to launch field tests with selected customers on a few selected routes in early 2023 and to begin expanding the system from Q3/2023. (ben)
