With holidays around the corner, Walmart starts last mile delivery service

Through its latest program, called Walmart GoLocal, Walmart will dispatch workers from its Spark delivery network to merchants’ stores to pick up items and then deliver them to shoppers.

“We were looking at different potential revenue streams, ways to commercialize the capabilities and scale that Walmart has – and so we’ll think about what that means as this program unfolds,” said Tom Ward, senior vice president of Walmart’s U.S. last mile business.

Walmart declined to give specifics about the program’s fee structure, but said it would be “competitively priced.”
