New York — Walmart will open a new dedicated e-commerce fulfillment, in the Indianapolis suburb of Plainview. The1.2 million-sq.-ft. facility is expected to open in early 2015.

Walmart’s other online dedicated centers are located in Texas and Pennsylvania.

"By combining large-scale online fulfillment centers with Walmart’s distribution centers, world-class transportation network and 4,200 stores, we have the ability to get incredibly close to our customers to deliver orders faster and at a lower cost," said Brent Beabout, senior VP of supply chain and logistics for Walmart Global eCommerce. "This center alone will allow cost-effective delivery to more than 160 million people in just one to two days."
