Just when we thought that Amazon couldn’t come up with a better delivery system than drones, the online retailer has devised a new way to deliver parcels to its customers, particularly those driving Audis in Germany! The company will now offer to deliver packages to Audi-owning Prime customers’ cars. The first phase of this program will begin in Munich on a trial basis, and depending on the response, Amazon will probably expand the service. In a Google Translated statement, Michael Pasch, director of Amazon Prime for the European Union, said, “We are working to offer Prime members a delivery location that is always available and convenient: the trunk of their car. This innovation makes shopping at Amazon even easier and more flexible. It gives customers another way to receive their orders.”
The service is being put to play in collaboration with the automaker Audi and shipping company DHL. As part of the service, Amazon Prime customers will need to give DHL couriers electronic access to the trunks of their Audis. The courier company will then leave packages inside the trunks of these customers’ cars on request. Amazon’s Prime $99-per-year service currently has more than 40 million members. This revolutionary delivery offering is particularly great for those who can’t spend too much time in a single location waiting to have their parcels delivered.
