Delivery Solutions Signs Walmart GoLocal as Last-Mile Partner

on Mar 9, 2022

Walmart Inc.'s delivery-as-a-service business has partnered with Delivery Solutions, a software firm that provides fulfillment technology for last-mile delivery companies.

Businesses of all sizes can contract with Walmart GoLocal, which Walmart started in August, to deliver their customers' orders the same day. Its "white-label" service means delivery vehicles aren't marked with Walmart's familiar yellow "spark" logo.Delivery Solutions provides retailers with e-commerce technology that powers online ordering and checkout. The company's software then analyzes a number of fulfillment criteria and selects a company to deliver that order to the customer.

Delivery Solutions partners with more than 40 delivery providers, including Instacart, Uber, Lyft, Shipt, UPS and FedEx, according to its website.

Home Depot was Walmart GoLocal's first retail client. It has since added Sam's Club and Chico's FAS, parent company of women's clothiers Chico's, Soma and White House Black Market.

In February, Walmart GoLocal teamed with Cognetry Labs to deliver online grocery orders for mid-sized and independent grocers.“We’re thrilled to join the Delivery Solutions platform as a reliable delivery service provider and share our expertise in local delivery with businesses of all sizes,” said Harsit Patel, general manager of Walmart GoLocal. “Due to our coverage, cost and extensive delivery capabilities, we know that Delivery Solutions customers will find the fulfillment options that best fits their needs through Walmart GoLocal, including delivery in as little as 30 minutes.”

Walmart GoLocal is a white-label delivery as a service offering that empowers businesses to grow using Walmart’s delivery capabilities and nationwide coverage at competitive pricing. This includes delivery on a range of assortment, including those with size and complex requirements, as well as the flexibility to meet varying timelines such as express, same-day and next-day. Walmart GoLocal is an important part of Walmart’s overall strategy, which includes diversifying its revenue streams and profit pools with initiatives like Walmart Connect and Walmart Fulfillment Services.

Delivery Solutions offers an experience driven orchestration platform that enables success for many of the world’s leading omnichannel retail clients across multiple categories. With a powerful single API and dashboard, Delivery Solutions provides a vast last-mile ecosystem as well as best-in-class solutions for same-day delivery, curbside, in-store pickup, shipping, lockers, autonomous, drones, and enhanced post-purchase notifications. This last-mile delivery optimization includes innovative fulfillment models that both future-proof omnichannel strategies and enhance brands, allowing the ultimate customer delivery experience.
