Walmart has partnered with logistics company Postmates to expand its online grocery delivery programme to more than 40% of the US households.

The logistics firm has started the delivery service in Charlotte, North Carolina with plans to expand the programme further in the coming months.

The retail chain with the help of its personal shoppers and Postmates’s delivery network, will deliver groceries to customers’ doorsteps.

Under the deal, Walmart will offer a three-week training programme for its personal shoppers on how to help customers to choose products using the delivery programme.

Walmart US central operations executive vice-president Mark Ibbotson said: “With the help of Postmates, we’re making grocery shopping even easier by bringing the every day low prices of Walmart right to the front door of customers in Charlotte with more areas to be added soon.”

To use the delivery service, customers need to place orders online at and on the Walmart Grocery App.
