Schnucks Uses Telematics for Fleet Visibility

Schnuck Markets, Inc., a family-owned and operated food and pharmacy company, utilizes a fleet management solution from the fleet optimization software and services company XATA Corp.

With more than 100 stores across seven states, Schnucks serves customers in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee, and Mississippi. The company uses XATANET's fleet operations software platform and services for real-time communications and to monitor the performance of its 85-unit truck fleet.

"Schnucks is one of the few grocers that distributes its own goods, and the ability to improve our fleet operations and provide exceptional customer service is critical as we face growing industry demands," said Bob Kramer, director of transportation for Schnucks.
