Walmart Opens Fourth Next-Generation High-Tech Fulfillment Center

Posted In: Retail Articles

Walmart has opened a new, next-generation 1.5 million-square-foot fulfillment center in Greencastle, PA, as it continues applying technology to logistics.

The new facility is Walmart’s fourth next-generation fulfillment center. Walmart describes the next-generation facilities as combining people, technology and machine learning together to achieve faster shipping and delivery while increasing Walmart.com order fulfillment capacity.

The facility will help expand consumer access to Walmart’s next- and two-day shipping, the company stated. As part of Walmart’s fulfillment network, next-generation centers will enable the retailer to reach 95% of the U.S. population with its speediest delivery. Walmart Fulfillment Services, the company’s third-party distribution business, will also use the facility to deliver on marketplace orders. 

Walmart recently announced that it would open a fifth next-generation fulfillment center in 2026.

“Walmart is paving the way for good jobs and great careers in the south-central Pennsylvania region with the Greencastle fulfillment center,” said Karisa Sprague, senior vice president of fulfillment network operations for Walmart U.S. “These tech-powered jobs will drive the future of Walmart’s continued promise of speedy shipping and delivery for customers on the east coast. Our next-generation fulfillment centers are the perfect example of how we are a people-led, tech-powered retailer.”
