Walmart tests grocery deliveries via DoorDash

Walmart is partnering with
DoorDash
to power its
online grocery delivery service
, which will start in
Atlanta and eventually expand across the United States.

The service will be similar to the delivery option Walmart
first started offering last month. If you’re within one of the
new delivery areas, you’ll be able to select that as an option
along with a time window that you’d like your order delivered
in. Then, Walmart will have one of its team members go through
and put all your items together — just like the company does
with its existing online pickup system — and pass the package
off to DoorDash, which will deliver your order.

It’s all pretty straightforward, and it’s something that seems
to make a lot of sense for Walmart. The company already has
most of the infrastructure in place for online grocery orders,
and by partnering with DoorDash to offer delivery in addition
to pickup, the company can easily offer even better service
without making a huge investment into building its own delivery
service.
