The new service is a new in-car delivery facility by Volvo. The service will allow packages to be delivered right into the back of the customer's car. Volvo owners can use the service to find their packages in their trunks.
According to Volvo they will use one-time master keys for the delivery service. The key will allow delivery men to place the ordered packages in the trunks of the Volvo car owners.
The delivery service is being launched in collaboration with other retail services. Such as PostNord a combined Swedish/Danish postal service and the online toy store Lekmer.com. Even the online grocery retailer Mat.se is involved in the delivery service.
“Christmas is fun – but let’s be honest, it is also a busy time for most families. This service simply makes shopping easier,” said Björn Annwall, Senior Vice President for Marketing, Sales and Service at Volvo. “Volvo In-car Delivery provides concrete proof that connected car technologies can be used to save people time and make their lives easier.”
Customers will place their orders either through PostNord or Lekmer. The customers can then select the in-car delivery options. The service will use a digital one-time access key to place the packages. Customers then have to just drive home with their packages. The facility is the world's first commercially available in-car delivery service.
The service is aimed at reducing the stress of shopping for the holidays. Volvo will launch he program in Gothenburg at the pilot phase. Then Volvo will expand the service to other parts of Sweden. Ultimately Volvo will expand to other countries. A similar program was launched in Germany by Audi, Amazon, and DHL.

“Volvo is not interested in technology for the sake of technology,” said Klas Bendrik, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Volvo. “If a technology does not make a customer’s life easier, better, safer or more fun, we don’t use it.”
