Walmart associates were joined by local elected officials and community members to celebrate the grand opening of a new 1.5 million square-foot fulfillment center 10 miles north of Hagerstown, located at 1915 Ebberts Spring Court in Greencastle. This next generation facility will enable the retailer to fulfill more orders, more quickly. The Greencastle fulfillment center is Walmart?s fourth next generation facility.

A fifth facility was recently announced that will open in 2026. These next generation facilities bring the powerful combination of people, technology and machine learning together to achieve faster shipping and delivery, while increasing order fulfillment capacity. The facility will contribute to expanded access to the retailer?s next- or two-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.
