Xos, Inc. and Loomis have taken a major step in reducing their carbon footprint by signing a purchase order for 150 additional armored electric vehicles for the US market. Loomis has been a pioneer in the use of armored EVs since 2019 when they first deployed 20 vehicles from Xos. As the largest contributor to the company's carbon emissions comes from transportation, Loomis is dedicated to reducing its fleet emissions.
Loomis CEO, Aritz Larrea, expressed his pride in the partnership with Xos, stating that the increased use of EVs will help the company and its customers reach their carbon reduction targets while maintaining high security standards. He emphasized the company's commitment to reducing carbon emissions and leading the industry in this transformation.

By significantly increasing the number of EVs in U.S. operations, we are on our way to both reducing our own emissions and helping our customers reach their targets while maintaining our high security standards,” said Aritz Larrea, President and CEO of Loomis AB. “We are proud that our collaboration with Xos puts us at the forefront. We will continue to partner with suppliers to find innovative solutions to reduce our carbon footprint while ensuring the safety of our employees and customers.”
Xos CEO, Dakota Semler, views the continued partnership with Loomis as a testament to the reliability and durability of their vehicles, and their ability to meet the high performance requirements of cash-in-transit operations. He praised the collaboration with Loomis as a highlight in their mission to help fleets transition to battery-electric operations.
