Walmart Canada Opens BC Distribution Facility

Walmart Canada has officially opened the doors of its most advanced grocery distribution centre, a state-of-the-art facility with leading-edge technology features and a focus on sustainability in Surrey, BC. The 300,000-square-foot facility is part of its $3.5 billion investment to generate significant growth and speed up the flow of products through the company's supply chain across Canada. Distribution through the facility will reduce the company's long-haul trips from Alberta and directly reduce its carbon footprint, supporting its journey to becoming a regenerative company. It was built vertically, using about half of the land mass that would be required for a traditional equivalent facility, and directly reducing its overall carbon footprint.
