Walmart is making significant investments in supply chains, logistics, and infrastructure in Canada and Mexico to assist millions of customers in saving money while shopping locally. These investments, raised independently in their respective markets, are aimed at increasing trust with local communities, increasing access to affordable goods, and creating jobs that advance communities and their residents. To improve customer service, Walmart is opening new, cutting-edge distribution facilities in Canada and Mexico to strengthen connections in its supply chains and expedite order fulfillment. These new facilities are expected to create 3,200 new direct and indirect jobs and will offer improved service and a larger selection of products.
In addition to its investments in Canada and Mexico, Walmart is also investing in carbon-zero distribution centers and using technology to speed up fulfillment at its next-generation fulfillment centers in the US. These centers will be able to deliver next- or two-day shipping on millions of items to about 75% of the US population. The company is committed to sustainability and plans to become a regenerative company by 2040, focusing on innovations that prioritize both people and the environment.
