Sina Technology News On the evening of August 19th, Beijing time, it is reported that people familiar with the matter today said that the American takeaway distribution platform DOORDASH is about to end the distribution cooperation with Wal -Mart for several years. According to this cooperation, Doordash can deliver Wal -Mart's grocery and other goods to consumers.
The insider said that Doordash decided to terminate cooperation with Wal -Mart because the transaction was no longer "mutual benefit." In addition, Doordash also wants to focus more on its long -term customer relationship.
People familiar with the matter said that Doordash sent a letter to Wal -Mart earlier this month to a letter to terminate the partnership, giving 30 days ahead of time. This means that the cooperation between the two sides will officially end in September.
In this regard, Doordash refused to comment. A Wal -Mart spokesman said that the two companies "had agreed to part ways." The spokesman said: "We want to thank Doordash for their cooperation with us in the past few years and support for our customers."
The cooperation between the two companies began in April 2018. At that time, Doordash was tested in the Atlanta metropolitan area to deliver the goods for Wal -Mart customers. Later, the cooperation expanded to the national states.
In fact, while using third -party delivery service providers such as DOORDASH, Wal -Mart has also been creating its own delivery department. Wal -Mart confirmed to the media today that the company is acquiring Delivery Drivers. Previously, Wal -Mart also cooperated with Delivery Drivers.
As the largest grocery chain in the United States, Wal -Mart has always dominated the grocery distribution market. The research company FreightWaves data shows that as of June 2021, Wal -Mart controlled 48%of all grocery delivery sales, slightly higher than 45%of Instacart.
At the same time, Doordash is also continuing to build its DOORDASH DRIVE platform. Doordash launched the service in December 2016, allowing companies to access their delivery drivers, and also allowed customers to order directly on the Doordash Drive customer website and APP.
