On Monday, the 2nd of September 2019, steaming up pressures further on to the world’s No. 1 online retailer Amazon.com Inc., the Mexican unit of US-based Amazon rival Walmart Inc., had issued a statement saying that the retailing tycoon’s Mexican wing had started off an exclusive delivery network capable of reaching the products at customers’ doorstep within three to four hours for certain tech products alongside household products purchased online, in a bid to take on its larger rival Amazon.com Inc.’s same-day delivery.
Aside from that, owned by a wealthy Walton family with 51 per cent stakes, the world’s largest company by revenue, Bentonville, Arkansas-based Walmart Inc.’s Monday’s (Sept. 2nd) statement had also added that the new speedy shipping services of its Mexican wing, dubbed as Walmart de Mexico, would include a swath of consumer goods ranging from cell phones to televisions to clothing irons.
Meanwhile, since Walmart Inc.’s a wrestle over faster shipping offer with Amazon.com Inc. had been heating up, the Bentonville-based e-commerce titan had started off a free next-day delivery in the United States, a day after Amazon.com Inc.
had unveiled a similar offer. On top of that, the United States’ No. 2 online and brick-and-mortar retailer set out two distribution centres earlier this year particularly dedicated to ramp up its e-commerce business in Mexico, Walmart Inc.’s largest overseas market in terms of store count.
