Walmart (NYSE: WMT) to Build Four New High-Tech Fulfillment Centers

Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) has confirmed plans to establish four new high-tech fulfillment centers, one of which will be in McCordsville, Indiana, some 20 miles northeast of Indianapolis. The new 2.2 million-square-foot complex, which will open in spring 2023 and deliver over 1,000 new employments to Hancock County, will be located at 5259 W 500 N.

Walmart chose McCordsville because of its accessibility to some of the country’s most populous cities, as well as its strong growth and attractive talent pipeline. McCordsville has increased 688 percent since 2020, according to the city, with single-family housing permits nearly doubling. Full-time positions, such as control technicians, quality audit analysts, and flow managers, will be available at the fulfillment center.

Greencastle was chosen by Walmart because of its proximity to several of the country’s most populous cities, including Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., as well as an attractive talent pipeline in the city and surrounding areas. On the other hand, Walmart chose Joliet, one of the fastest developing communities in the Chicago metro region due to its strategic access to transportation and logistics networks, proximity to some of the country’s largest metros, and attractive pipeline of talent.

Customers and Walmart+ members in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Ohio will be able to get next- or two-day shipping on millions of items thanks to the fulfillment center’s cutting-edge automation technology. The new center will set a new standard for Walmart in terms of fulfillment speed while also maintaining a positive work environment for associates.

Furthermore, starting on their first day, Walmart associates are given a path of potential. Associates can take advantage of Walmart’s Live Better U program, which allows them to acquire a college degree in business, technology, supply chain management, and other fields without going into debt, with Walmart covering 100% of tuition and books. Walmart Supply Chain Academies, for example, pay workers to learn through immersive instruction that includes technology, classroom training, and continuing coaching in their roles.
