Winn-Dixie Stores Inc will use XATA Corporation’s XATANET system and fleet management applications to optimize its delivery fleet, which serves the grocer’s 515 stores throughout the southeastern United States.

XATA will help Winn-Dixie further reduce its operating costs by leveraging XATANET’s fleet reporting capabilities for increased real-time and trending visibility. In addition, fleet managers and drivers will have access to fleet information and product delivery data via XATANET, which will run on Motorola MC75 handheld devices provided by Stratix.

“One key differentiator that made XATA stand out is its capability to run XATANET on various platforms and hardware devices,” said Chris Scott, group vice-president of logistics and distribution for Winn-Dixie. “The product’s functionality as well as the insight we will gain from our fleet were key factors in our decisionmaking process.”

“We think that actionable data and Fleet Performance Management reporting is crucial for fleet management technology, and we’re confident that Winn-Dixie will benefit from the applications and flexibility we’ve built into our technology,” said David Gagne, executive vice-president, field operations, XATA Corp.

Founded in 1925, Winn-Dixie is headquartered in Jacksonville FL. It currently operates 515 retail grocery locations in Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, and Mississippi. For more information, visit www.winn-dixie.com.
