Me being a Mod has nothing to do with this conversation.
Walmart would spend a lot more money than they would save, as would Peterbilt, Wabash and Great Dane. Walmart only owns a fraction of the trucks that pull their trailers. The vast majority are contract carriers. So they would end up replacing the small fleet of their own trucks, and then their massive fleet of trailers.
If one of the Big Three trucking companies was behind it then I would say they'd build it. Walmart is too small.
