Abstract

Walmart is one of the largest retailers in the world, and its supply chain system is affected. Through the analysis of Walmart's business and technology, this paper discusses the reasons for Walmart's success. The success of Walmart's supply chain system must be connected to its efficient logistics system, advanced information technology, and close cooperation. Analyzing Walmart's information-based logistics supply chain relationships highlights the importance of data sharing, automation, and optimization in improving operational efficiency, customer experience, cost reduction, brand management, and employee productivity. To improve competitiveness and meet customer needs, this study provides insights for local retailers in China. The study concludes with a summary of the research findings. The study concludes by summarizing the research findings, discussing its limitations, and suggesting future research directions.
