The Last Word: Walmart’s Dave Guggina on Reinventing Company’s Supply Chain in DFW

DFW made sense “for us to bring all of the future in one place at one time.”

.…on why Walmart chose Dallas-Fort Worth as the first market to put all its “reinvented” supply chain capabilities in one geographic location, via the Dallas Morning News.

In 2022, we told you about two next-gen, robotics-packed Walmart facilities that were coming to Lancaster, just south of Dallas: a 1.5 million-square-foot automated fulfillment center and a 730,000 square-foot automated grocery distribution center. The first opened last year and the second is still under construction. When it’s completed, it will complete a trifecta of transformation in the region, including a retrofitted 1.2-million-square-foot distribution center in Sanger, north of Denton.

According to the Dallas Morning News, DFW is the first market where all the capabilities of Walmart’s reinvented supply chain are in one geographic location.

“What we found with Dallas is just unique in that you’ve got urban locations, you’ve got rural locations, you’ve got a broad socio-economic base,” Guggina told the DMN’s Maria Halkias. “So this is the location where we have deployed every piece of new hardware and software.”
