If you’re on the road and see a car operating with nobody in the driver’s seat, don’t freak out. The vehicle could be carrying precious cargo–dairy, deli, and specialty products, of course–as Walmart has expanded its partnership with Gatik to carry out a driverless supply chain operation in Arkansas.

The company reached a new milestone when it began the autonomous vehicle pilot last year, where the vehicles operated on a two-mile route between a store that is not currently open to the public and a Neighborhood Market in Bentonville, Walmart revealed in a press release. Now, more than 70,000 miles later, the retailer will be working even harder with Gatik to stay on top of the use of driverless vehicles in the industry.Walmart has expanded its partnership with Gatik to carry out a driverless supply chain operation in ArkansasNow the company plans to test a longer delivery route, as it expands the pilot to a second location, where the autonomous vehicles will be used to deliver items from a Supercenter to a Walmart pickup point. The operation will begin next year on a 20-mile route between New Orleans and Metairie, Louisiana, allowing shoppers who live further away from the New Orleans location to enjoy the benefits of the retailer’s popular pickup service.With more and more technological advancements falling into its pocket, how will the retailer continue to set the pace in the grocery delivery sector?
