FedEx Uses 15 Hydrogen Fuel Cell Tractors

FedEx energy manageFedEx rolled out hydrogen fuel cell ground support equipment (GSE). Under a $2.5 million grant awarded from the Department of Energy, FedEx is operating the 15 hydrogen fuel cell-powered Charlatte GSEs and a Plug Power hydrogen fueling station.

The 15 hydrogen fuel cell powered GSE cargo tractors are now part of a fleet of more than 1,500 gas, diesel and electric cargo tractors at the FedEx World Hub in Memphis, Tennessee. The units are fueled by hydrogen, dispensed directly into the fuel cell systems by the truck driver from a 15,000-gallon liquid hydrogen fueling station located on the airport ramp.

Recently, FedEx also worked with Plug Power and the Department of Energy to install and test GenDrive brand hydrogen fuel cells in 35 forklifts at a FedEx Freight facility in Springfield, Missouri.
