Walmart will start delivering groceries to your fridge

Walmart inhome delivery

With Walmart's new system, not only can an order be delivered when you're out, but it'll also be put directly into your refrigerator.

The launch announcement comes nearly two years after Walmart (which already offers delivery through third-party companies, as well as store pickup) began testing the InHome service, teaming up with a security company called August and delivery company Deliv.

Walmart is not sitting back idly while Amazon makes deliveries inside customers' homes and garages. It will use what the company calls smart entry technology and customers can watch the delivery live as it happens from their computer or smartphone or review the footage later, Walmart said. The effort follows a small pilot program Walmart conducted two years ago in California with smart-home provider August Home, which used workers from startup Deliv to handle the in-home deliveries.

Beginning this fall, about 1 million people in Pittsburgh, Kansas City, and Vero Beach, Florida, will be able to get cereal and celery while away from home.

Walmart charges a fee for grocery delivery but it has not announced what the costs for in-home delivery.

This time, Walmart will use its own workers, who have been with the retailer for at least a year, and use its own vehicles.

Speaking of which, this is expected to retain the slim bezels and punch hole found on the Galaxy S10 line. Alongside of its display, the 5G-enabled S10 shares the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and 8GB of RAM .

The online delivery wars will soon be inside shoppers' homes.

"Now we can serve customers not just in the last mile, but in the last 15 feet". That's right, not only will a Walmart delivery person enter your home, but they will literally stock your fridge with the groceries you ordered. The company said it would share more details ahead of the planned fall launch.

"Once we learned how to do pickup well, we knew it would unlock the ability to deliver", McMillon said in an advance statement.

Marc Lore, eCommerce President & CEO, weighs in on e-commerce strategy and its expansion "from inside the website" at the 2019 Walmart Shareholder's Meeting.

Walmart's new delivery model comes out of its tech incubator, Store No. 8. An employee will then pick up the items at the store, deliver them to the house and place items that require cold storage in the refrigerator, Walmart said.
