The deal was small but key to Walmart’s new express delivery service.


Parcel sends order updates to its merchant clients and their customers in real time via text messages. The startup has also compiled a database of every New York City building it has delivered to, including photos and detailed information on service entrances.  The merging of business and consumer channels.
