How Walmart GoLocal plans to stand out among delivery businesses

Since being announced in August, Walmart GoLocal has invited comparisons to companies like DoorDash and Instacart thanks to its same-day delivery focus. Yet there is a key difference between GoLocal and other providers: GoLocal doesn’t have its own customer-facing platform. Instead, its focus is to deliver orders made on its clients’ websites and apps.

“That’s a big differentiator, to be respectful of not disintermediating business-to-consumer relationships,” Harsit Patel, general manager of Walmart GoLocal.

Walmart has been smart about how it does things. It will be hard for Amazon to compete head on with something like this because they tend to want everything in an Amazon box :wink:
