Volvo begins parcel delivery service to its car boots

After the service was tested by a number of firms earlier this year, Volvo has become the first to offer its customers an innovative new option. Customers can have parcels delivered to their car – even if they are not there.

The Swedish manufacturer has launched the delivery service in Gothenburg, partnering with fellow Scandinavian companies PostNord, and to deliver the goods.

The service works by allowing the courier to track the location of the customer’s car and gain access to their boot using a one-time digital key. The customer is then informed by text or email once the delivery is complete.

The three participating companies will give Volvo drivers the option to choose the in-car delivery option when they order online. The manufacturer has plans to extend the service beyond Gothenburg to other Swedish cities before rolling it out across Europe.

“Christmas is fun – but let’s be honest, it is also a busy time for most families. This service simply makes shopping easier,” commented Björn Annwall, Volvo’s senior vice president for marketing, sales and service. “Volvo In-car Delivery provides concrete proof that connected car technologies can be used to save people time and make their lives easier.”

Volvo’s latest models offer generously sized boots, so users of the service can order plenty online and expect it all to fit. The all-new XC90 holds seven people in total and still has room for 451 litres of luggage.
