Volvo Testing Direct-to-Car Deliveries
volvo | February 23, 2014
Volvo has announced an innovative new technology that would allow a delivery service like FedEx, UPS, and your local grocery to make package deliveries straight to your vehicle instead of to your home or office. The appeal of the service is obvious since many times a delivery service won’t leave a package in an unsecured location.
Volvo’s new technology involves a temporary digital key that is generated at the time of the transaction. The key will allow the buyer to track the package and also allows the delivery person the ability to gain access to the vehicle to drop off the item. After delivery, the digital key is no longer valid. This system has some great potential, allowing those who live in apartments and buildings that don’t provide for convenient delivery, the option of secure delivery straight to their car.
