DC Velocity reports that Walmart is telling its for-hire motor carriers that the company will no longer do business with trucking companies that also haul goods for Amazon. However, Walmart claims the report is false and it would be illegal if they were to tell trucking companies who they could or could not do business with.
- Walmart allegedly is telling trucking companies that they may have to choose between its business and Amazon’s.
- Walmart, which uses for-hire carriers and dedicated contract relationships along with its own private fleet, would not disclose the extent of the company’s outside carrier relationships.
- These developments, if true, are likely to have significant implications for U.S. transportation companies as Amazon and Walmart remain two of the largest users of truckload capacity.
“Walmart allegedly is telling trucking companies that they may have to choose between its business and Amazon’s, according to widely reported comments from a transportation and logistics consultant — a report the retailing giant denies.”
