Walmart Canada have launched a new, sustainable grocery delivery service In Vancouver on 20 September
The initiative was first announced in February in a press release stating that Walmart Canada had reached an agreement with Sustainable Produce Urban Delivery (SPUD) to use its delivery platform, Food-X, to serve Walmart Canada customers in Metro Vancouver.
As part of its continued exploration of ways to compete with Amazon’s delivery capabilities, Walmart Canada recently announced a similar partnership with Instacart to help it tackle “last mile home delivery” in Toronto and Winnipeg.
In February, Peter van Stolk, SPUD CEO, said:
“Consumer demand for online grocery shopping is growing and that means more trucks on the road”.
“Now we’re offering Food-X to other companies who share a commitment to sustainability, efficiency and strong customer service”.
According to Supermarket News, Food-X utilizes shared warehouse space with retailers to consolidate orders and thereby reduce the number of trucks necessary to fulfil multiple deliveries.
