Walmart Uses Innovative Onboard Technology To Go the Extra Mile for Drivers – Walmart Corporate

Science & Technology

June 20, 2022
For most retailers, supply chain innovation can feel like building an airplane while flying it. Walmart recognizes that the pilots — or in this case, our private fleet drivers — are critical to our success. That’s why we are committed to improving their experience. Not only are we offering industry-leading benefits, compensation and development programs, but we have implemented two technology tools that work together to create a world-class driver experience and provide real-time visibility to the day-to-day operations of our network of more than 12,000 drivers.
In collaboration with Platform Science, a telematics infrastructure and transportation technology leader, every Walmart Private Fleet cab is now equipped with an intuitive, interactive tablet device that fully integrates with NTransit, a driver workflow application developed by Walmart’s product and technology teams. This customized onboard computer system provides private fleet drivers with a world-class technology experience, the business with real-time visibility and our customers with what they want, where and when they want it.
Walmart has a rich history of transformation. Our latest approach leverages technology to transform the lives of drivers by eliminating friction and unlocking their potential. By utilizing Platform Science’s telematics infrastructure solution to deploy our NTransit app, we provide drivers:
Our drivers are giving the technology the green light. A point of pride for the Platform Science and Walmart collaboration has been the significant increase in driver satisfaction, reflecting the best-in-class experience we want to provide. We plan to continue improving and evolving our onboard systems based on feedback from our drivers and store associates so our supply chain associates can do their jobs with safety, courtesy and pride. Walmart will continue to invest in disruptive technologies to take flight in today’s complex retail environment.
We are actively hiring drivers. Apply to drive at drive4walmart.com.
