"But I see even more upside for our own same-day deliveries".

Walmart has purchased Parcel, a delivery logistics startup that focuses on overnight and same-day last-mile delivery, Reuters reports.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Jet already has been testing free same-day delivery of certain orders to customers there, Mr. Faust said. Walmart said that Parcel will continue to serve current clients. While Parcel stands to boost Walmart's same-day delivery prowess in the New York City area, it still has hefty competition from Amazon which offers same-day and two-hour delivery in a number of regions. "That's why my team spends a lot of time thinking about ways we can make deliveries faster and more convenient for customers", Faust said.

The Walmart announced they had bought the East Williamsburg based delivery service Parcel Tuesday. The company has partnerships with several meal kit, grocery and e-commerce companies.

"Using routing algorithms, a fleet of leased trucks, and a professional, employee-based workforce, they're able to quickly sort and load packages for delivery routes".

In addition, Walmart is investing in grocery pick up and delivery programs to complement online shopping and grocery, which is available in more than 900 USA stores.
