XATA Corporation (NASDAQ: XATA) announced that Delhaize Group is leveraging XATANET across its Food Lion, Hannaford, and Sweetbay Banners to maximize its fleet performance with one common technology platform. Delhaize America, a supermarket operator with more than 1,500 stores in 16 states in the eastern United States, is running XATANET on 780 trucks across these three banners.
Delhaize decided to expand its fleet management capability to achieve optimal customer service and increased safety and performance. XATANET will allow Delhaize to better track speed performance and driver behavior and to access driver, vehicle route, and delivery information in real-time.
The firm will also take advantage of XATA Fleet Performance Management (FPM), a planning, visualization, and analytic tool that provides expanded insight into key performance indicators and helps drive performance with its fleet-related business objectives. Delhaize will implement a set of Fleet Scorecards available in FPM to enable executives, managers, supervisors, and drivers to visualize their performance, understand any underlying issues through drill-down analysis, and react appropriately.
“Delhaize knows that to be competitive in the food retail business, they need efficiency on all levels,” said David Gagne, executive vice-president, field operations, XATA Corp. “We are pleased to work with this forward-looking company to provide a fleet performance management solution that helps them reach their goals, not only in their supply chain, but also in their overall retail operations.”
Delhaize is a Belgian international food retailer present in six nations on three continents. At the end of 2009, its sales network consisted of 2,732 stores. Delhaize employed approximately 141,000 people at the end of 2008.
