Audi, Amazon Launch Direct to Trunk Delivery Service

Amazon Prime will be testing a new delivery service that will always guarantee you get your packages.

The company is launching the pilot program next month on a very limited trial basis in Munich, Germany and has teamed up with DHL to bring the direct to trunk delivery service to Audi vehicles. According to a statement on the company’s website, the program requires customers to give an approximate location of their vehicle during the delivery period, where the DHL delivery driver will be granted a one-time access code to the trunk of the Audi.

The service takes advantage of Audi connect to give access to the trunk, with the one-time code expiring as soon as the trunk is closed again. The German automaker is hoping in the future vehicle owners will be able to use the Audi connect easy delivery to also send letters and parcels from their own car.

“With comprehensive connectivity, we are transforming the car into a service device and integrating it even more closely into the everyday lives of our customers,” said Luca de Meo, Member of the Board of Management for Sales at AUDI AG. “Audi connect easy delivery helps save time and offers more convenience and flexibility – advantages that are increasingly important for the target group of a premium brand.”
