One of the most stressful aspects of the festive season is shopping for presents. Volvo has come up with a new idea to help its customers minimize this stress with the new Volvo in-car delivery service. It has teamed up with the leading communication and logistics supplier in Scandinavia, Post Nord, Lekmer.com, an online retailer of toy and baby goods and Mat.se, an online grocery retailer based in Sweden to come up with what is possibly the world’s first commercially available in-car delivery service.
There will be no more parking hassles or braving the crowds of shoppers in crowded malls for Volvo owners as they will have Christmas toys, gifts, food and drinks delivered to their cars. All they need to do is place their orders online and choose the In-car Delivery option at the online checkout when they place their order. A digital key will grant the shipper one-time access to their vehicle for the delivery and the shopping process is complete
Commenting on the service, Björn Annwall, Senior Vice President for Marketing, Sales and Service at Volvo said, “Christmas is fun – but let’s be honest, it is also a busy time for most families. This service simply makes shopping easier.” He added that the Volvo In-car Delivery service provided solid proof that connected car technologies can be utilized to make life easier for motorists and help them save time.
Currently, Volvo In-car Delivery is only available for Volvo drivers in Gothenburg who subscribe to the Volvo On Call service. In the future, it will be introduced elsewhere in Sweden and in other countries. In the future, the range of goods that will be available for purchase through the service will also be wider as as Volvo collaborates with more companies.
The Volvo In-car Delivery service showcases Volvo’s drive to explore new technologies, in different areas like safety, autonomous driving and connectivity, and adopt them to make life more convenient and safer for drivers.
“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.”
