Volvo Unveils New In-Car Delivery Service to Help Customers with Christmas Shopping

Just in time for famous online shopping days such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Volvo Cars has developed a new delivery service that is here to help its customers make the best out of their holidays. The Swedish carmaker claims it has launched the world’s first commercially available in-car delivery service that does exactly what it says.

With the help of PostNord, the Nordic region’s leading communication and logistics supplier, Lekmer.com, the leading Nordic online toy and baby goods store, and Mat.se, a Swedish online grocery retailer, Volvo is hoping it can save its customers the regular hustle shopping implies.

After all, this is the main reason online shopping is growing in popularity with every passing month: its convenience. Volvo In-car Delivery is here to eradicate the most unpleasant aspects of seasonal shopping such as a desperate search for a parking space in a busy city center, crowds of stressed people and the disappointment of missed deliveries.

In case you’re wondering how it works, you should know it’s through a digital key, which is used to gain one-time access to your vehicle. Owners simply order the goods online, receive a notification that the goods have been delivered, and then just drive with them.

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.

It should be noted that the service is currently only available for Volvo drivers in Gothenburg, but the company is considering expanding the service in case it proves to be successful. It's still not clear how safe the system is and how many drivers will trust the service, but time will tell.
