Now, Amazon can deliver to cars

Amazon can now leave packages in your car trunk, starting with GM and Volvo

Amazon, which recently started an offer to deliver packages inside people's homes, now offers to deliver inside people's cars.

The delivery service works when cars are parked in publicly accessible areas, such as on the street in front of an apartment building, at a workplace surface parking lot, or in a home driveway - but not in a private parking garage, for example.

Inc. this morning launched Key In-Car, a novel package delivery option that it hopes will make online shopping even more convenient than it is now. The company's new Key In-Car deliveries allow an Amazon delivery person to drop off an order in the trunk of your vehicle, but only select cars in certain places. The service is available to Amazon Prime members in 37 U.S. cities.

The customs union means the EU is a trade bloc with all the countries involved applying the same tariff on goods from outside coming in.

The catch? Amazon's Key In-Car is only available to Prime members in 37 cities who own a 2015 or later model of a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac or Volvo auto.

Amazon customers can grant couriers access to their vehicles through connected technologies that are already installed in many of today's newer cars. When consumers are ready to purchase, they select "in-car" at checkout rather than delivery to a home or office location. Customers must park within range of their delivery address and a delivery driver will bring the package to the vehicle during the scheduled time window. They'll also receive notifications regarding the delivery time and can track the locking and unlocking of the vehicle through the app.

"If you allow people to go into your cars, and I know they're also doing their homes, you are really forming a trusted relationship with your end user".

The White Sox said he regained consciousness before an ambulance took him from Guaranteed Rate Field to the hospital. Can you imagine what they went through, and are still going through?" "And prayers are more necessary than talk".

A final notification comes when the vehicle is locked with the package inside.

It's an all too common complication for Amazon deliveries, packages get stolen right off your porch. It's available for free to Amazon Prime members with GM or Volvo cars that are 2015 or newer and also have an active OnStar or Volvo on Call account. Amazon's drivers do not receive special codes or keys to gain further access to the vehicles. The driver clicked the app, opened the trunk, popped in the package and was gone in five minutes. It's then locked back up after the delivery is complete. Customers receive a notification when the delivery is en route, after it's made, and after the vehicle is relocked. Once the driver is confirmed to be at the right place with the right package, the auto is unlocked. Now, it's remotely controlled, app-connected locks on houses and cars to let couriers inside.
