SALISBURY, N.C. — Delhaize America [2], which operates more than 1,500 stores in 16 states in the eastern United States, is running Xatanet fleet optimization software from Xata, Minneapolis, on 780 trucks across its Food Lion, Hannaford and Sweetbay banners.

The system is designed to allow Delhaize to better track speed performance and driver behavior and to access driver, vehicle route and delivery information in real-time.

Delhaize will also use Xata's Fleet Performance Management (FPM) system, a planning, visualization and analytic tool that looks at key performance indicators. Delhaize will implement a set of Fleet Scorecards available in the FPM system to enable executives, managers, supervisors and drivers to visualize their performance, understand underlying issues through drill-down analysis, and react appropriately, Xata said in a statement.
