Not home? This is Amazon's solution to deliver your package

Amazon will put a package right in your vehicle

GM noted that the new service will be available for some 7 million vehicles, so presumably this won't only work with a trunk - it'll also work for leaving packages in a pickup truck's cab, e.g., since many GM 2015 and newer vehicles on the road today are Chevrolet Silverados and Colorados or GMC Sierras and Canyons.

Prime members register their auto model, complete checkout online as they typically would, and then park their vehicle at the designated delivery address on the scheduled delivery date. The company hopes this new delivery system will make receiving packages more convenient, since customers can be just about anywhere to receive their goods. The retail and technology giant has given its Prime subscribers access to get packaged delivered to the trunk of their vehicle, without any additional costs. The delivery person will also have to confirm that the vehicle is securely locked before they leave. You need to download the Amazon Key app, and link your auto before you begin shopping. That system uses a $220 combination of an internet-connected door lock and camera to allow Amazon delivery drivers to place packages inside the homes of members of Amazon Prime.

Amazon Key enables in-car deliveries by linking your Amazon Prime account with your Volvo On Call account. They get notifications of their four-hour window, when their courier is on the way and when the package has been delivered. Through this app, they can link their cars to their amazon accounts.

AMZN says the in-car delivery service is available for Same-Day, Two-Day and Standard shipping, with customers simply selecting "In-Car" delivery at checkout.

Batash was a lecturer at Universiti Kuala Lumpur , specialising in power engineering, according to the university. Tan Sri Fuzi said: "It's not going to be easy to track them down as we believe they're using a fake identity".

Amazon Key was introduced previous year as a secure and trackable way for packages to be delivered inside homes when people aren't there, using internet-connected locksets. You can make this selection and set up a backup delivery preference within the Amazon Key App. Instead, have it delivered to your auto trunk, keeping it locked up and out of sight. No additional hardware or devices are required.

"Receiving a package securely and reliably in your auto, without you having to be there, is something we think many people will appreciate", said Atlif Rafiq, Chief Digital Officer at Volvo Cars. Not to mention if we had to choose, a stranger having access to the trunk of our Camry is much less worrisome than giving them a key into our home... That same service also allowed for deliveries at home a year ago.

Note that the service doesn't have to use a different location than someone's typical package delivery address - it's allowing outside access to their vehicle.

"This mix of vehicle and commerce is starting the next wave of innovation and we intend to be at the forefront".
