We had read about how Walmart customized product packs to optimize shipping and space but the Walmart Truck take it to the next step of transportation itself.

Show to the extent Walmart can go to save that extra dollar of cost by efficient shipping. Loved the super futuristic cabin of the tractor cab .

Not sure if this is a production ready one or a concept on trails at present and what would be the cost compared to a tradition truck and if it justifies the price tag with its efficiency.
