When it comes to delivering online grocery orders, Walmart is taking a “more the merrier” approach.

Walmart is adding four new companies to its rapidly growing roster of online grocery delivery providers. Point Pickup, Skipcart, AxleHire and Roadie will help support Walmart’s online grocery deliveries in more than 100 metro areas across four states, with further expansion planned in the coming weeks. Walmart grocery delivery is available in more than 800 stores, with another 800 stores and more than 200 new metro areas being added this year.

The delivery companies will work in tandem with Walmart personal shoppers who pick online orders. After an order has been picked, a driver will retrieve the order from a Walmart store and deliver it to the customer during their specified delivery window.
