Walmart teams up with GM’s Cruise to pilot all-electric self-driving delivery

News

Walmart is expanding its pickup and delivery services, so customers can get the items they need quickly and safely.

Info

In April alone, it launched Express Delivery and have since scaled it to more than 2,800 stores, reaching more than 65% of American households.

The company announced that it is growing its delivery options. It has been experimenting with new ways it can use technology to serve customers in the future. Walmart, along with self-driving car company, Cruise, has launched a new pilot in Scottsdale, Arizona. What's unique about Cruise is they're the only self-driving car company to operate an entire fleet of all-electric vehicles powered with 100% renewable energy, which supports our road to zero emissions by 2040.

As part of the pilot, which begins early next year, customers can place an order from their local store and have it delivered, contact-free, via one of Cruise's all-electric self-driving cars. Technology that has the potential to not only save customers time and money but also is helpful to the planet is technology we want to learn more about.

“You've seen us test drive with self-driving cars in the past, and we're continuing to learn a lot about how they can shape the future of retail. We're excited to add Cruise to our lineup of autonomous vehicle pilots as we continue to chart a whole new roadmap for retail,” said Tom Ward, SVP of Customer Product, Walmart US in a blog post.
