Audi Teams Up with DHL & Amazon to Deliver Packages to Owners’ Trunks

No more missed packages.

A new partnership between Audi and DHL allows packages to be directly delivered to the trunk of the customer's Audi. Now, eligible Amazon Prime purchases will be delivered directly to participating Audi vehicles in the Munich area.

Naturally, in order to successfully deliver the package, the DHL delivery worker has to gain access to the customer's vehicle. This sounds risky, but participating Audi owners must fully agree to the delivery method through Amazon purchase, before the DHL delivery worker receives a digital access code which opens only the trunk of the vehicle. This code can only be used once, and only during a specific time. Once the lid of the trunk is closed, the code is inactive, and the trunk cannot be opened again by DHL. Audi has not released an official list of compatible vehicles, but we're guessing the new 2016 Audi R8 is not DHL-compatible.

Providing the experimental delivery service is successful, the same participating Audi owners will have the chance to send letters and packages from the trunk of their car in the future.

The program goes into its real-world testing phase in May, centered on vehicles in Munich, Germany.
