Volvo has just launched the world’s first commercially available in-car delivery service in its hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden. It was developed in cooperation with PostNord, the Nordic region’s leading communication and logistics supplier, Lekmer.com, the leading Nordic online toy and baby goods store, and Mat.se, a Swedish online grocery retailer.
Originally unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, two years ago, and similar to Audi’s pilot program with Amazon and DHL, the Volvo In-car Delivery service works via a digital key, which is used to gain one-time access to your vehicle. Owners simply order toys, gifts, food or drinks online, receive a notification that the goods have been delivered to their car, and then just drive home with them.
With Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the holiday season fast approaching, timing couldn’t be better. Too bad Volvo In-car Delivery is currently only available in Sweden!
If you were a Volvo customer, would you use a service like that?
