An hour is all it takes with new Sam's Club delivery service

Sam's Club, a membership-only warehouse retailer under Walmart, launched a one-hour delivery service in Shanghai today in partnership with JD Daojia.

Sam's Club, a membership-only warehouse retailer under Walmart, launched a one-hour delivery service in Shanghai on Tuesday in partnership with JD Daojia, the grocery delivery platform of e-commerce giant JD.com.

About 1,000 frequently purchased Sam's Club items, including fresh food, maternal and children's products, personal care products and snacks, will be delivered by Dada-JD Daojia, a subsidiary of JD.com, to customers within one hour after they make the order on JD Daojia.

Two depots, one in Puxi and the other in Pudong, have been set up to facilitate the new service, which usually covers an area within a three-kilometer radius.

More depots will be opened across the city, the company said, which aims to cover all of its target areas in Shanghai by the end of this year.

"By offering one-hour delivery, we are further upgrading our services in Shanghai which has been one of the most important markets for Walmart in China," said Chen Zhiyu, senior vice president of e-commerce and cross border e-commerce at Sam's Club. 

"As planned, the service, which was initiated in Shenzhen in April, will be gradually rolled out to more major Chinese cities, including Beijing."
