Xos delivered five more battery-electric stepvans to five different FedEx Ground Operators in Southern California in March 2022. FedEx Ground Operators work as FedEx Corporation independent service providers (ISPs). The ISPs ordered these 15 stepvans in 2021 for 2022 delivery. Xos had already delivered three more vehicles to UniFirst, to be used in Santa Fe, California, as we reported here.
«We are pleased to continue delivering vehicles to FedEx Ground Operators and supporting them in meeting their sustainability goals and reducing total cost of ownership», said Jose Castañeda, Vice President of Business Development for Xos. «This is the first of our 2022 deliveries to FedEx Ground Operators and we are excited to continue rolling out our products to this leading, nationwide fleet».
