Amazon launches deliveries to US customer cars

Tuesday 24 April 2018 | 15:47 CET | News
Amazon has announced an expansion to customer cars of the Amazon Key service it unveiled last year to enable unattended in-home delivery. The new in-car delivery service is available at no extra cost for Prime members and works by giving the company's delivery providers permission to access customer vehicles and drop packages into their trunks. The e-commerce giant specified that the Amazon Key app needs to be linked to a connected car service like OnStar and that customer cars need to be parked in a publicly accessible area.
