Volvo Cars has launched a novel in-car delivery system for its customers in Gothenburg, Sweden. This initiative is meant to take out some of the hassle faced during holiday shopping.
The automaker has tied up with PostNord, the Nordic region’s communication and logistics supplier; Lekmer.com, the Nordic online toy and baby goods store; and Mat.se, a Swedish online grocery retailer. Through all these tie-ups customers have been given the option to get stuff like toys, gifts, food and even drinks delivered directly to their car.
The system works by way of a digital key which is used to gain a one-time access to the customer’s vehicle. All the owner has to do is order goods online and then he gets a notification stating that the goods have been delivered to the car.
The festive season is one of the busiest times of the year for most families and this service is aimed to ease the load of shopping. It also will help in avoiding stressful situations like looking for parking space in busy parking lots, standing in long queues for the same product and missed deliveries.
