Walmart plans $350 million in high-tech upgrades at Alabama distribution hub

CULLMAN, Alabama — Retail giant Walmart announced plans today to invest $350 million to add high-tech robotics and automation technologies to its regional distribution center in Cullman.

The investment will improve the hub’s productivity, enabling it to double shipments and keep the shelves stocked at the Walmart stores it serves. It will also serve to evolve strenuous, manual jobs into those that offer new skills in robotics and technology.

“Walmart’s Cullman distribution center has been a pillar in our community for the last 40 years,” said Ken Caviness, general manager of the Cullman distribution center. “Adding robotics, automation and AI-powered software systems to this facility will revolutionize an already impressive operation, fundamentally changing the way we distribute products to stores.

“This isn’t just an investment in our facility, but also in our associates, our community and our future.”
