DDI Is The Administrator Of Driver Management For Walmart’s Spark Delivery Pilot
We're excited to announce that Delivery Drivers Inc. will be the administrator of driver management for Spark, Walmart's new pilot delivery platform.
Spark Delivery is a crowd-sourced delivery platform that uses Walmart’s in-house system providing drivers with Grocery Delivery order details, step-by-step navigation instruction and more. In the role of administrator DDI will be responsible for managing recruiting, screening and background checks, payment, and accounting, among other services for drivers.
In the Spark program, drivers are paid by the delivery and are able to sign up for the windows of time that work best for their schedule. They also have access to helpful services and information like assistance in understanding order flow, group discounts and a Contractor Entrepreneurial Program that helps drivers establish their own small business.
Spark Delivery is currently being piloted in Nashville and New Orleans with plans to roll out to a few more metro areas this year.
“It is important to us at DDI that we help each independent driver run their transportation business correctly. We are excited to partner with Walmart to allow them to focus on providing great products while we can build and support a professional driver network to focus on the delivery side of the business.” – Aaron Hageman, CEO Delivery Drivers, Inc.
