Walmart Acquires Logistic Start-Up: Looks to Launch Same-Day Delivery in NYC

But, Faust said he sees even more upside for the retailer's own same-day deliveries.
Founded in 2013, Parcel bills itself as a "last-mile delivery solution" that can integrate with existing ecommerce platforms through its API.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Earlier this month, electronics retailer Best Buy Co. expanded its same-day delivery from 13 to 27 cities. Parcel will continue to deliver for its existing customers, but it will become the so-called last-mile courier for Walmart.com and Jet.com, the e-commerce company Walmart bought a year ago. Additionally, the area's density, as well as the proximity of Walmart's fulfillment centers, makes the city the ideal place for "high-impact innovation", Faust asserted.
Walmart has sought to leverage its way into e-commerce through a string of acquisitions. Born and bred in New York City, Parcel has developed unique expertise delivering to customers in a distinctly challenging and essential market. "This acquisition allows us to continue testing ways to offer fast delivery while lowering our operating costs".
At the time that Walmart U.S. e-commerce lead Marc Lore announced the development, Bloomberg News found the company's customer service department was unaware the services was forthcoming.
