Ford Partners With Amazon to Enable Package Deliveries to Trunks
By Bloomberg, 4/30/19

Ford Motor Co. is the latest automaker opening its vehicles’ trunks to Amazon.com Inc., entering a partnership to enable delivery of packages directly to millions of Ford and Lincoln models.

Ford follows General Motors Co. and Volvo Cars in joining with the online retailing giant to offer Key by Amazon In-Car delivery service. Beginning Tuesday, the service will be available on 2017 and newer Ford vehicles and 2018 and newer Lincoln models equipped with a modem.

Using an Amazon app in conjunction with Ford or Lincoln apps, delivery drivers can unlock the car, place packages in the trunk or back seat and then re-lock the vehicle. It’s aimed at addressing consumer concerns about the security of packages left unprotected on front porches and provides another opening for Ford as it wades into the world of e-commerce. Read More
