Walmart To Expand InHome Delivery

Walmart

Delivery service right to the refrigerator is expanding in the US this year as its successes have taken hold. 

  • Far and wide: Walmart’s InHome delivery has been available to 6m household in the US since its launch in 2019. And by the end of this year, the retailer plans to make it accessible to 30m homes. To do this, Walmart will be building a fleet of all-electric vans and hiring over 3k delivery drivers.
  • How it works: The InHome delivery service app allows the delivery person to use a one-time access code to enter a customer’s home. Customers have access to a body cam video of the entire process as well.
