Having to wait around all day for a parcel to arrive can be annoying. For Audi drivers who subscribe to Amazon Prime in Germany, that will no longer be an issue as they will be given the option to have packages delivered right to their vehicles. The program requires each customer to give an approximate location of the vehicle during the delivery period for DHL delivery drivers to locate the car and deliver the parcel.
This is the first phase of the program in which truck drivers will be given a one-time password to open the recipient’s trunk so that they can place the parcel inside. “We are working to offer Prime members a delivery location that is always available and convenient: the trunk of their car,” said Michael Pasch, the Amazon Prime Director for the E.U. “This innovation makes shopping at Amazon even easier and more flexible. It gives customers another way to receive their orders.” If the first phase is successful, the service may soon be extended to Amazon Prime customers all over the world. The new Amazon Prime and Audi delivery service will launch in Munich in May.
