New program provides alternative to doorstep drop-offs

Amazon has been known to push the boundaries when it comes to delivery options (including unlocking people’s home when they’re not there) and now it’s launching a complimentary in-car delivery service.

The Amazon Key In-Car Delivery allows customers to get packages delivered directly inside the trunk of their car within four hours of ordering online. The company hopes this new delivery system will make receiving packages more convenient, since customers can be just about anywhere to receive their goods.

Amazon’s website states the delivery system will work with an “active connected service plan” with the vehicle, enabling Amazon Key to sync with a ‘remote lock and unlock’ feature to enter the car to drop off the packages and lock up once the transaction is complete.

Customers will be asked to park their car “in a publicly accessible area” within two blocks of the delivery address. They can keep track of their packages in real-time and receive updates throughout the transaction.

The Amazon Key In-Car Delivery system is currently available to Prime Members in 37 select cities and compatible with GMC, Volvo, Chevrolet, Buick, and Cadillac vehicles. Eligible vehicles must be a 2015 model or newer and currently connected to a car service plan like OnStar.
