Target is buying a company that facilitates quick local deliveries”

Over time this has allowed the company to control their logistics to the point where they can even offer customers same-day deliveries, which does solve one of the problems of online shopping which is the waiting for your package to arrive.

Grand Junction already works with Target on its same-day delivery pilot at Target's store in New York City. Target plans to expand the service to other NY locations this year.

"Grand Junction's technology and algorithms will help Target deliver to guests faster and more efficiently", said Arthur Valdez, EVP and chief supply chain and logistics officer at Target.

According to the company's website, Grand Junction is the only provider of same-day delivery in every market in the United States and Canada, allowing leading retailers, 3PLs, distributors, and start-ups to offer local delivery through its technology platform and network of 700 local carriers. Retail experts say they see the move as a way for Target to better compete with Amazon, as more of its customers use e-commerce to purchase products and expect speedy and low-priced delivery.

Grand Junction specializes in software that connects retailers with about 700 delivery companies around the country.

Expanding delivery and making it faster have been key areas retailers have focused on to attract convenience-seeking shoppers.

Mark Kenny, who will join Target from Walmart later this month, will oversee Target's meat, seafood and deli sections.
