Walmart Canada Launches Updated Fulfillment System

Walmart Canada has opened a state-of-the-art warehouse order fulfillment system at a distribution centre in Cornwall, ON – the first of its kind at Walmart Canada. This $20-million investment will improve the retailer’s supply chain and future-proof the organization by equipping associates with the technologies, training, and development they need to modernize work and keep goods flowing. The 40,000-square-foot space provides the retailer with a modern method of order fulfillment that uses innovative technology with a user-friendly computer system to deliver goods to associates. The system will provide general merchandise, including health and beauty products, apparel, stationery, and electronics to 136 Walmart stores from Kingston, ON, to Canada's east coast. It is part of the company’s $3.5-billion investment to make the online and in-store shopping experience simpler, faster, and more convenient for associates and customers. Cornwall is also home to four Walmart distribution centres, covering 2.9 million square feet.
