Walmart will use Uber to Deliver Groceries

Cowen & Co.'s Chen Says Wal Mart Is'Well-Positioned

Customers choosing home delivery through Uber will be charged a flat $9.95 per-order delivery fee by Walmart, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The world's largest retailer had launched a pilot grocery service with Uber Technologies Inc. last year in Phoenix and then Tampa, Florida, earlier this year. Walmart's online grocery delivery expansion on the other hand will be completed through a partnership with Uber. The pilot is now ongoing in Phoenix and Tampa, Fla. 21, the big-box retailer announced the expansion of its online grocery delivery service to the Dallas and Orlando markets, just ahead of a meeting set for Wednesday, when Amazon's $13.7 billion bid for upscale grocer Whole Foods Market Inc.

The move is the latest step in Wal-Mart's broader e-commerce push, which includes curbside grocery pickup in more than 900 locations and two-day free shipping on millions of items.

"We've been testing delivery in a number of ways for a while now in key markets across the country", said Mike Turner, VP, eCommerce operations, Walmart, in a blog on the company's website.

Walmart operates its own grocery delivery system in San Jose, California, and Denver.
