Walmart partners with additional distribution companies to expand online delivery services

Walmart is partnering with four additional third-party delivery providers to expand online grocery services further. The new partners are Point Pickup, Skipcart, AxleHire and Roadie, who join an already 800-plus strong team currently providing online delivery for Walmart. Presently, Walmart delivers groceries in more than 100 metropolitan areas, with plans to expand to more than 300 by the year’s end. In addition to delivery services, Walmart offers a click-and-collect service that delivers to shoppers’ cars. This is available in 2100 stores with plans to add this to 1000 more stores this year.

Tom Ward, SVP of digital operations said, “Customers love our grocery delivery service. As they are busy managing jobs, soccer practice, dance lessons and social schedules, we are on a mission to do more than keep a little extra money in their pockets. With the help of these new delivery partners, we’re making grocery shopping even easier by bringing the every day low prices of Walmart right to the front door of customers.”

Walmart currently commands more than 11,200 stores under 55 banners in 27 countries with more than 2.2 million associates worldwide.
