The two San Francisco firms will partner with Wal-Mart to get last-mile grocery deliveries to customers as part of a test program starting in two weeks. Uber will deliver for Wal-Mart in Phoenix, while Lyft will do the same in Denver. The two firms generally compete against each other for business in both cities.
Customers can order certain goods online and select a window for same-day or scheduled delivery. Then Wal-Mart employees will summon a driver from a ride-hailing firm to pick up the shipment and take it to the customer, who will be notified the delivery is on its way.
