Amazon greenlights Prime in-car deliveries

Amazon greenlights Prime in-car deliveries

A delivery driver remotely unlocks the auto, places the package inside and re-locks the vehicle. No special codes or keys are ever provided to delivery drivers.

Deliveries are available right now to Prime members with 2015 year or newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicles with GM's OnStar connected-car service, and those with a 2015 or newer Volvo vehicle with an active Volvo On Call account.

Amazon latest perk. free delivery to your auto.

Amazon added that the In-Car service is launching in 37 cities and surrounding areas across the United States "with more cities rolling out over time". Select your preferred in-car delivery option and complete your order. They sell any and every product or service you can think of, they own entire companies like Whole Foods, they employ over a half million people, and they also produce award-winning movies and TV shows. However, they should have cars from Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac or Volvo from 2015 or later with connected auto features such as OnStar or Volvo On Call. Amazon plans to add additional makes and vehicle models in the future. GM owners must have an active OnStar account, and Volvo owners need an active On Call account.

"In-car delivery gives customers that same peace of mind and allows them to take the Amazon experience with them". They then receive an estimated four-hour delivery window. "Receiving a package securely and reliably in your auto, without you having to be there, is something we think many people will appreciate".

With better package security being one of the main benefits touted of the service, a critical point of this service will be, effectively, whether customers can trust Amazon with the keys - and that's in terms of cybersecurity, trustworthiness of personnel, and system malfunctions.

Amazon's Key program was first launched in October. "And, with no additional hardware or devices required, customers can start ordering in-car delivery today", Larsen said. By turning the customer's vehicle into a mobile storage locker, AMZN can deliver packages virtually anywhere - home, office or even while on vacation.

The downside? While a home always stays in one place, a vehicle is constantly on the move.

In-car deliveries can't happen in gated communities or in underground garages that kill satellite signals to the navigation systems. Thefts of packages from porches - especially during busy holiday seasons - have been a growing problem, but Key helped to address that issue.

Retail purchases from amazon.com are the engine that keeps AMZN stock humming.
