XPO has won an exclusive three year contract to transport clean hydrogen in the UK and Ireland for Ryze Hydrogen, after impressing the company with its experience and technical expertise.
As the sole transport provider of hydrogen in the UK and Ireland, XPO is helping to write the National Occupational Standards governing the performance of individuals in the field, along with the knowledge and skills required to work safely and effectively in hydrogen production, storage, and transportation.
Neil Isaacson, Ryze Hydrogen chief executive, said: “After a detailed and rigorous process, XPO was selected as the logistics provider that will help to drive Ryze’s ambitious strategy in the UK.
“We’re excited to work with XPO Logistics starting in 2024, and we look forward to engaging this high-performance partnership for years to come.”

XPO said Ryze Hydrogen’s focus on providing net zero solutions for companies wanting to decarbonise “resonates strongly” with its push towards Carbon Neutrality by 2040 and Net Zero emissions by 2050 in the UK and Ireland.
Because Ryze Hydrogen’s operational model enables hydrogen fuel to be pumped the same way as traditional fossil fuels, it takes no longer to refuel a hydrogen vehicle than a diesel one, and hydrogen has the same range as fossil fuels.
Dan Myers, XPO UK and Ireland managing director, said: “Both Ryze and XPO recognise the importance hydrogen will play in the energy mix of the future.
“By leveraging both businesses’ respective strengths and working in partnership, we can ensure a robust supply chain that will support the resilience of the UK energy sector.”
