Walmart’s logistics and fulfillment solutions are now available to Marketplace sellers in Canada.
Local businesses can now offer customers two-day shipping or in-store pick-up with the launch of Walmart Fulfillment Services (WFS) in Canada.
WFS offers end-to-end fulfillment services and customer support, including returns, for Marketplace sellers.
As part of the service, Walmart handles all storage and logistics – sellers ship inventory directly to Walmart, where items will be stored, picked, packed and shipped to customers
There are no inventory requirements or minimums to participate.
“Walmart Fulfilment Services is the foundation to building the most convenient, affordable and fastest fulfilment ecosystem in Canada,” said Laurent Duray, chief e-commerce officer, Walmart Canada, in a release. “The launch of Walmart Fulfilment Services in Canada is a vote of confidence in omnichannel as we build a best-in-class experience for our customers with our Marketplace as an important growth driver.”
Walmart Canada’s Marketplace is home to more than 7,000 sellers, including thousands based in Canada.
