The Swedish car company Volvo has introduced an in-car order delivery to Volvo owners in the town of Gothenburg.
The company has joined forces with PostNord, Sweden and Denmark’s logistics supplier, Lekmer.com, the Nordic online toy shop, and Mat.se, an online grocery to deliver shopping this Christmas.
A single-use virtual ‘key’ is sent to a delivery driver which allows them access to the boot of the car to leave ordered packages. Car owners can simply order online, select ‘in-car delivery’, leave their car in town and later drive home with the order.
“Christmas is fun – but let’s be honest, it is also a busy time for most families. This service simply makes shopping easier”, observes Bjorn Annwall, the Senior Vice President of Marketing at Volvo.
Volvo is also planning on teaming up with more companies, indicating that this delivery could become more widely used for different goods around the developed world.
