Groceries Delivered to Your Fridge?
Walmart has announced plans to bring its grocery delivery service beyond its brick and mortar stores and customers’ front doors to right inside their refrigerators. Walmart will be launching an “InHome” delivery service this fall that will allow customers to get their groceries delivered inside their home refrigerator by a Walmart employee. The retail giant says that the employees will be outfitted with cameras and lots of tech that will give customers the ability to watch the delivery remotely and ensure everything is above board. Walmart says they will conduct extensive employee training before the service launches in Vero Beach, Pittsburg, and Kansas City and still hasn't specified what tech the company will use to get inside customer’s homes. Out of curiosity - if available, would you do this?
Fedex and Amazon will no longer be flying high as the shipping giant has chosen not to renew an agreement with Amazon. For a number of years, Fedex has handled lots of logistics and aerial transportation for Amazon but when the contract between the two expires at the end of the month, Amazon will become just another Fedex customer. It’s believed that contract gave the e-commerce giant some notable discounts for shipping, but seeing as Amazon is beefing up its own distribution network, the decision seems to make sense for both companies. There have long been rumors that Amazon is building up its own fleet of Airplanes, Vehicles, and even drones that would give the company the resources to handle shipping entirely on its own.
