Reuters first to report Walmart's grocery delivery partnerships with Uber, Lyft fails to take off

Reuters was first to report Walmart has ended its online grocery store delivery partnerships with ride-hailing services Uber and Lyft – a potential setback in the retailer’s rivalry with Amazon. The end of the Walmart partnerships, which had not been previously reported and was confirmed by Walmart and Uber, undercuts a vision the ride-hailing companies laid out: a service that can efficiently deliver anything on-demand, including people and cargo, at the touch of a smartphone app.
