Video: Walmart expands Dallas drone delivery network

17 January 2024

Walmart is expanding its drone delivery network with Wing, Alphabet’s drone delivery division, and Zipline to reach about 75% of the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Texas, area.

Walmart claims it will now have the largest drone delivery footprint of any U.S. retailer.

The expansion will include stores across more than 30 towns and municipalities in the DFW metroplex. Walmart said the deliveries will be powered by on-demand drone delivery providers Wing and Zipline to offer an additional 1.8 million households in the area.

Walmart’s drone service allows users to get items in 30 minutes or less and offers deliveries until 10:00 PM.

In the last two years, Walmart has been working with drone vendors to complete 20,000 deliveries including groceries, medicine, cookies, eggs and coffee.

“Our first few months delivering to Walmart customers have made it clear: Demand for drone delivery is real,” said Adam Woodworth, CEO of Wing. “The response has been incredible from customers ordering drone delivery from Walmart every day, and it’s a testament to our partnership that we’re now expanding our footprint to bring this innovative delivery option to millions of Texans. If this milestone is any indication, we believe 2024 is the year of drone delivery.”
