We were very excited to turn over the new fulfillment facility to Walmart Canada in September. Their operation will begin at this new 435,160 SF building featuring cutting-edge logistics technology.
Highfield and its partners are a leading Industrial developer. We build large-scale distribution centres and warehouses for some of the largest companies in the world. The completion of this new facility is an important milestone for High Plains. The new fulfillment centre will support Walmart Canada’s growth and enable the company to provide even better service to its customers. Our team is proud to have contributed to Walmart’s success story in Canada.
Walmart Canada has a growing online business and is committed to offering its customers convenient, easy-to-use shopping experiences. The company offers more than 1 million products on Walmart.ca, including food, and household goods.
The new Alberta fulfillment centre is capable of shipping 20 million items annually from the facility to Walmart customers. It is also capable of storing 500,000 items to fulfill direct-to-home and in-store pickup orders. The design of the facility was created with the goal of optimizing packaging, minimizing waste, and reducing transportation costs. Finally, this new fulfillment centre will create more than 325 new jobs at Walmart, plus construction and engineering jobs.
