It was the last month, when Walmart joined hands with August smart lock for in-fridge delivery. Now, it’s Amazon’s turn. Amazon wants one time access to your home or car trunk to deliver items directly into home or car — as reported by CNBC.
Company is in talk with Phrame, a smart license plate manufacturer, that allows items to be delivered directly into car’s trunk. Phrame products are fitted near the license plate that holds a secure compartment holding car keys inside it. An user can unlock the compartment via its smartphone to give access to the delivery driver.
Amazon is also developing a smart doorbell, that would give one time access to deliv driver. So that deliv driver can enter inside home for in-home delivery.
This in-home delivery would fix many problems like unattended delivery. Some time when user is not at home delivery person leave the box outside the door. and , some big risk occur when user orders valuable items. Amazon also wants to handle “porch pirates” who usually steal packages from door steps.
“Unattended delivery is the least desirable of last-mile fulfillment options as it leaves the package exposed to all kinds of risk,” said Natalie Berg, an analyst at Planet Retail RNG. “It’s not just the financial cost but also the impact that a failed delivery can have on brand reputation and customer loyalty. Nothing makes shoppers more irate than missing a delivery.”
