Walmart is a true American success story. Our business model begins with one of the world's most advanced supply chains, an incredibly efficient trucking network and some of the best drivers on the road. In addition, Walmart has a long-term approach of working directly with manufacturers to eliminate markups and bringing affordable, high quality merchandise and groceries to the communities it serves, in part by partnering with small, local famers in every region of the country. Earlier this year, Walmart also committed to source an additional $50 billion in U.S. products over the next 10 years. This builds on where the company is today, which according to suppliers, items that are made, assembled, sourced or grown in the U.S. accounts for about two-thirds of what we spend to buy products at Walmart U.S. Learn more at www.therealwalmart.com.
