"We are delighted to partner with Shell and assist in producing sustainable fuels, so we can work together on decarbonising the energy and transport industry."
Renewable Energy Logistics will focus on delivering supply chain solutions and logistics services for all major modes of transport for existing and new customers in the renewables industry such as wind (on-shore and off-shore), hydro and solar energy sectors, the statement added.
