Walmart’s white-label delivery service Walmart GoLocal has surpassed more than 1 million deliveries, President and CEO Doug McMillon said.

The announcement comes just as the GoLocal delivery service is approaching its one-year anniversary, with several major retail chains such as The Home Depot and smaller players using it to offer last-mile delivery to their customers.

The service facilitates scheduled and unscheduled deliveries for partnering merchants. The deliveries are handled by gig workers hired through the company’s Spark Driver program, which also supports the company’s same-day delivery service.

“We continue to sign up larger-scale customers and we’re making strides on the bigger unlock, which are small- and medium-sized businesses,” McMillon said. “Our technology and expertise will help so many of these businesses grow while contributing to our operating margins over time.”

Walmart has set a target of offering delivery from 5,000 retail store locations by the end of 2022. The company’s push toward growing its GoLocal delivery business comes as it is looking to build new revenue streams and grow its business beyond its retail stores.

“We’re becoming more digital, even more relevant as an omnichannel retailer, and the related businesses like fulfillment and advertising continue to grow,” McMillon said.
