Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is enhancing its shipping deliverables with fulfillment center.
This instruction applies only to a small number of its 4,500 U.S. locations which are scheduling workers for more hours than expected.
“We’re rapidly enhancing our fulfillment capabilities to give customers more choices and fast shipping, while keeping our costs down so we can continue to lower our prices,” said Neil Ashe, CEO Walmart Global e-commerce.
“Whether shipping to home or picking up at a store, our digital and physical fulfillment assets come together and let customers choose the most convenient way to receive their online orders”, he added.
This is the third e-commerce fulfillment facility opened by the Wal-Mart in the second half of the year.
Last month, Wal-Mart announced plans to hire 60,000 employees to fulfill the holiday shopping demand, as well as several additional holiday help in its e-commerce fulfillment centers.
