U.S. retail giant Walmart announced Tuesday that it will provide customers with free next-day delivery covering hundreds of thousands of "most frequently purchased" items.
美国零售业巨头沃尔玛周二宣布，它将为客户提供包含数十万“最常购买”物品的第二天免费送货服务。Marc Lore, president and CEO of Walmart eCommerce U.S., said in a statement that the next-day delivery program covers "220,000 of the items most frequently purchased, ranging from diapers and laundry detergent to toys and electronics, with more assortment to be added."
沃尔玛电子商务美国公司总裁兼首席执行官Marc Lore在一份声明中表示，第二天的交付计划涵盖“最常购买的220,000件物品，从尿布和洗衣粉到玩具和电子产品，还有更多品种可供选择。 “"It is available on eligible orders of 35 dollars or more, with the specific assortment varying by customer location," he added.
“它适用于35美元或以上的合格订单，具体分类因客户所在地而异，”他补充道。Next-day delivery, according to Lore, will be available first to Walmart.com customers in Phoenix, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada, and will expand to Southern California in the coming days.
根据Lore的说法，次日交付将首先提供给位于亚利桑那州凤凰城和内华达州拉斯维加斯的Walmart.com客户，并将在未来几天内扩展到南加州。Walmart will gradually roll out the plan in the coming months. It expects the new sales strategy to reach approximately 75 percent of the U.S. population this year, which includes 40 of the top 50 major U.S. metro areas, said the statement.
沃尔玛将在未来几个月逐步推出该计划。该声明称，预计今年新的销售策略将达到美国人口的约75％，其中包括美国50大主要城市中的40个。Walmart started with same-day in-store pickup in 2011 and began offering two-day free shipping in 2017 with no membership fee, according to the statement.
根据声明，沃尔玛于2011年开始当天店内提货，并于2017年开始提供为期两天的免费送货服务，不收取会员费。Walmart's new initiative was viewed by U.S. media as a measure to compete with rivals in the retail sector, as it came after Amazon announced on April 25 that it would spend 800 million dollars in the second quarter for free one-day delivery for all of its Prime members.
