Walmart Takes Majority Stake in Symbotic

The retailer last month expanded its partnership with warehouse automation specialist Symbotic, which will see its tech implemented in all 42 of Walmart's regional distribution centers.

Additional facilities planned for Orlando, Los Angeles, Chicago and Long Island City, N.Y.

The retailer continues to build on its anything, anytime, anywhere commitment.
