SCI Canada, a logistics supply chain provider, and Walmart Canada announced the opening of SCI’s largest dedicated and purpose-built distribution centre.

It will be utilized to fulfil Walmart Canada’s online orders. The centre is approximately 450,000 square feet and is located in Mississauga, Ontario, a suburb in the Greater Toronto Area.

The centre is a solution for logistics and fulfillment that is part of Walmart’s strategy to continue growing its e-commerce. Walmart says there is a need for it because its Canadian website is visited daily by more than 750,00 customers.
