Walmart’s urban same-day delivery plans

Do you see demand for same-day delivery growing in more densely populated communities around the U.S.?

Interactive Edge’s CEO, Zel Bianco comments:

People in urban markets like NYC will always want convenience so the demand will be there. What would concern me is the logistics as NYC has never been more congested than it is now. More Ubers, more tourists, more Citi Bikes, more messengers going the wrong way, more construction, more closed streets and no way to get around these obstacles. Parcel will need to figure out a way that gets groceries and other items from point A to point B and there will not be a special lane set up for this. I predict their biggest problem will be keeping drivers on the job as they will get burned out in a New York minute.

Walmart deal shows it’s serious about same-day delivery
