Another last-mile tweak: Amazon delivering to GM vehicles' trunks

Adjust Comment Print

The Amazon Key In-Car Delivery system is now available to Prime Members in 37 select cities and compatible with GMC, Volvo, Chevrolet, Buick, and Cadillac vehicles.

Shrivastava also said that Amazon can not see or track the customer's vehicle; instead, the customer gives Amazon an address where the auto will be parked and publicly accessible, along with the make, model, color and license plate number to help the delivery person find the right auto. The thought of a stranger getting into your home or auto, no matter how thorough the background checks on delivery personnel gets or how many measures Amazon has in place to prevent their delivery people from robbing customers.

The service will be available for Prime members who own Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac and Volvo-branded cars, with Amazon able to deliver packages inside its customer's parked vehicles at specific locations. It also notifies customers when the delivery is on its way, and the package has arrived.

Customers must download the Amazon Key app to which they can link a connected auto. Those with compatible cars, who live in cities where the service is available and who have a Prime membership (check your eligibility here) can opt in.

On delivery day, the Amazon Key App lets customers check if they've parked within range of the delivery location, and provides notifications with the expected 4-hour delivery time window.

On April 24, AMZN announced the launch of its new Amazon Key In-Car delivery service.

The in-car service builds on an effort Amazon launched last fall called Amazon Key.

More significantly, however, are Amazon's plans to use its acquisition of Whole Foods to conquer the online grocery delivery business. No additional hardware or devices are required.

An Amazon deliveryperson remotely unlocks a auto trunk before making a delivery. It allows customers of an Opel or Chevrolet to detect auto defects, get a stolen vehicle to drive more slowly and to know where their auto is at all times, the exact thing Amazon needs. While buying from the website, at checkout, users must select the in-car delivery option. Volvo did something similarly in Goteborg several years ago, with smart vehicle keys granting couriers access to the trunk of parked cars. When the delivery driver arrives-before your auto is unlocked-Amazon verifies that an authorized driver is at the right location with the right package, through an encrypted authentication process.

Rather than use any new gadgets, this time, it's about giving temporary permissions to the Amazon driver via the in-car computer system. "This intersection between transportation and commerce could very well be the next wave of innovation, and we intend to be at the forefront".
