Walmart Canada’s fleet has expanded to include our first 60-foot multi-temperature refrigerated trailer. It’s also the first of its kind for Walmart in North America.
The custom-built multi-temp refrigerated trailer allows us to ship more freight to stores in a single trip, resulting in improved efficiency within our supply chain and less C02 emissions.
Launching this type of trailer is the latest example of how Walmart is innovating within transportation to transform the industry with our size and scale.
“Introducing this 60-foot, custom-built, multi-temperature refrigerated trailer into our fleet is latest example of how Walmart Canada is continually innovating within supply chain and pushing boundaries in the industry,” explains Patricio Dallan, SVP, Supply Chain, Walmart Canada. “When Walmart makes a change, it has a ripple effect. In this case, we’re introducing a new custom solution to the Canadian market that helps to reduce our total number of trips and emissions. We’re incredibly proud of this milestone.”
