Report: Skipcart to halt Walmart deliveries

An on-demand delivery service says working with Walmart is not profitable.

Citing an initial article in Bloomberg, Pymnts reports that Texas-based delivery provider Skipcart will stop performing on-demand grocery deliveries for Walmart in March 2020. Initially, Skipcart had told Walmart it would end the partnership in May 2020. The two companies launched their delivery collaboration in 2018

Skipcart, which has been providing delivery services for 126 Walmart stores across 32 states, mostly in smaller markets, reportedly is ceasing its Walmart partnership because the company has been losing money on the deal. Deliv and Uber have also both stopped making deliveries for Walmart in the past few years due to what they said was an inability to turn a profit. 

Skipcart reportedly has been making about 50,000 grocery deliveries from Walmart stores to customer homes every month. The company reportedly plans to instead focus on delivering digital restaurant orders.
