US: Walmart, McLane Extend 25-Year Relationship

Walmart has announced a renewal of its service agreement with supply chain services giant McLane, which will see the latter continue to deliver to Walmart’s US outlets, while also becoming the sole provider of confectionery and tobacco products to the vast majority of Walmart’s retail locations.

McLane will now become the exclusive provider of Walmart’s seasonal confectionery products to all Walmart US stores.

Walmart noted: “McLane’s ability to deliver temperature-sensitive products to all of our stores and manage our large volume of seasonal goods will ensure we have the best selection of high-quality products at the lowest cost for our customers”.
The contract is scheduled to renew in May 2017.
