Lancaster, Texas — Walmart has opened a new 1.5 million-square-foot fulfillment center 15 miles south of Dallas, located at 2500 Belt Line Rd. in Lancaster. This next-generation facility will enable the retailer to fulfill more orders, more quickly. The Lancaster fulfillment center is the third of four next-generation facilities announced last year. A fifth facility was recently announced that will open in 2026.
“Walmart is paving the way for good jobs and great careers in the Dallas region with the Lancaster fulfillment center. These tech-powered jobs will drive the future of Walmart’s continued promise of speedy shipping and delivery for customers in the south-central U.S. just in time for the holidays,” says Karisa Sprague, senior vice president, Fulfillment Network Operations for Walmart U.S. “Our next-generation fulfillment centers are the perfect example of how we are a people-led, tech-powered retailer.”
The facility will contribute to expanded access to the retailer’s next- or 2-day shipping. Combined with the rest of Walmart’s fulfillment network, these next-generation fulfillment centers will enable the retailer to reach 95% of the U.S. population with the service. Walmart Fulfillment Services, Walmart’s end-to-end third-party fulfillment service, will also leverage the space to fulfill Marketplace items.
