US-based delivery and fulfilment firm Delivery Solutions has partnered with Walmart’s white-label delivery-as-a-service business, Walmart GoLocal, to offer last-mile delivery services.
Through the collaboration, Delivery Solutions will be able to provide an omnichannel shopping experience with express, same-day and next-day delivery options for retailers of all sizes.
Founded in 2018, Delivery Solutions offers third-party aggregation and orchestration software for retailers.
The company’s services include delivery intelligence while consumers are browsing, post-purchase tracking, visibility and communication.
Delivery Solutions founder Manil Uppal said: “We are very excited about this collaboration with Walmart GoLocal, as both our brands share a dedication to customer service and retail client support.
“As part of our ongoing commitment, we look forward to providing our customers with access to all options for same-day delivery.
“We are confident that Walmart GoLocal’s capabilities, combined with our expertise in cutting-edge omnichannel programs, will provide Delivery Solutions customers with even more convenience and flexibility.”
Launched last August, Walmart GoLocal is designed to deliver goods to customers and businesses of all sizes using Walmart’s delivery capabilities and nationwide coverage at competitive pricing.
The service is part of Walmart’s wider strategy to diversify its revenue streams and profit pools through initiatives such as Walmart Connect and Walmart Fulfilment Services.
Walmart GoLocal general manager Harsit Patel said: “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.
“Due to our coverage, cost and extensive delivery capabilities, we know that Delivery Solutions customers will find the fulfillment options that best fit their needs through Walmart GoLocal, including delivery in as little as 30 minutes.”
In October last year, US-based home improvement retailer The Home Depot partnered with Walmart to offer fast delivery services using Walmart GoLocal.
