In just three years, the retailer launched and scaled delivery and Express delivery for its customers on 160,000-plus items from more than 3,000 stores, reaching nearly 70% of the U.S. population and growing using its existing delivery network, including drones, autonomous vehicles and market fulfillment centers.
- This includes delivery on a range of assortment, including those with size and complex requirements, as well as the flexibility to meet varying timelines.
“We’ve worked hard to develop a reliable last-mile delivery program for our customers,” says Tom Ward, SVP, last-mile, Walmart U.S. “Now, we’re pleased to be able to use these capabilities to serve another set of customers – local merchants.
