Amazon Now Delivers Orders to Parked Vehicles

The company’s stock is up more than 200% since February 2016 and looks set to maintain the current upward trend for the next several quarters

One consumer gave a testimonial to Amazon and stated that she enjoys having her diaper order delivered to her auto as it has made changing her toddler a lot easier and she no longer had to worry about her child's nap being disrupted by the doorbell.

Today, Amazon has announced that it is taking convenience to a whole new level.

Last fall Amazon took a step toward trying to provide a more secure delivery solution for Amazon Prime members who were ordering physical goods from the company.

Amazon Key In-Car Delivery is free for Prime members and allows an order to be delivered to your parked auto, either in the trunk or left on or under one of the seats. The service is available on millions of Amazon items and works with the same day, two-day and standard shipping options.

Amazon can unlock and deliver packages to the following cars: Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, or Volvo.

Amazon said that more and more automobile brands will be added over time. Each time a delivery driver requests access to a customer's vehicle, Amazon verifies that an authorized driver is at the right location with the right package, through an encrypted authentication process. On the day a package is scheduled for delivery, customers use the Amazon Key app to confirm that their auto is parked in a place where a delivery can be made. After a customer adds their car's color, make and model into the app, a delivery person can find it with the aid of Global Positioning System.

Well, now your vehicle trunk can be a safe and convenient delivery option.

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

Amazon said Tuesday that, through its Prime Now program, Whole Foods customers in Denver, Sacramento and San Diego can now get free two-hour delivery of natural and organic products.

The new in-car delivery service, which will be available in 37 U.S. cities and surrounding areas, is a variation of Amazon Key. Amazon then notifies customers when the package is delivered and the vehicle is relocked.

"Amazon's tentacles are everywhere", said Chester.

Couriers can use those assistance services to find the cars through satellite location-tracking and unlock the trunk.

Customers won't be able to get in-car deliveries if they park inside gated and underground parking garages where satellite signals often can't penetrate.

It's a new addition to the Amazon Key program, which began in October, that allows Amazon drivers to open customers' front doors and leave packages inside.

"You'll have the ability to have it delivered directly to your auto", said Joel Soper with Randy Wise Buick GMC,"OnStar will unlock the vehicle remotely when the delivery driver get there". Packages are placed in the vehicle's trunk or out of plain sight. The vehicle has to be parked within the radius of the of address used for deliveries.
