BC-based Geazone Eco-Couriers has announced the launch of North America’s first hydrogen-powered courier fleet.

Geazone Eco-Courier is a BC-based zero-emissions courier company that provides sustainable delivery services, third-party logistics and freight services to businesses across Vancouver Island and Vancouver.

Their 40 new Toyota Mirai fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) are powered by hydrogen — and their only tailpipe emission is water.

Earlier this year, Toyota announced it was partnering with ride-share leader Lyft to make available a similar fleet of zero-emission FCEVs for ride-share drivers in the Vancouver area.

Geazone’s launch of its hydrogen-powered courier fleet is partly a result of changes in the economy brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Geazone plans on expanding its hydrogen-powered fleet in the coming months.

Hydrogen BC, the association championing British Columbia’s hydrogen industry, sees today’s announcement a strong indicator of hydrogen’s growing momentum in the province.

The launch is timely, in light of a recent announcement by the government of British Columbia regarding its CleanBC Roadmap to 2030 plan to help B.C. achieve its 2030 emissions reduction targets and reach net-zero by 2050.

Geazone received rebates from the Province’s CleanBC Go Electric Hydrogen Fleet program, which offers fleet operators $8,000 to a maximum of 35% of selling price for the purchase of an FCEV to help B.C. businesses reduce emissions.

The federal government also recently released its Hydrogen Strategy for Canada, setting an ambitious framework to make Canada a global hydrogen leader.
