Adding to its area delivery offerings, Amazon is turning trunks in Kansas City, Kansas, into mailboxes.
The Seattle-based tech giant on Tuesday introduced in-car delivery options in 37 U.S. cities, allowing its Prime members to receive packages in their parked vehicle. Kansas City, Kansas, and St. Louis are the only cities in Kansas and Missouri on the list.
To use the service, Amazon Prime customers must download the Amazon Key app, which will authorize a delivery driver to drop off a package in a customer’s vehicle. No special access or keys are given to the driver, and Amazon notifies the customer when a package is delivered and a vehicle is relocked.
For now, only newer cars from Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac and Volvo are compatible with the service.
The Amazon Key app also allows customers to request that delivery drivers drop off packages inside their homes. Amazon Home — which was launched in Kansas City, Kansas, in October — requires users buy an Amazon Cloud Cam and a smart lock to grant access to delivery drivers.
Amazon in January passed over the Kansas City metro as the home for its prospective second headquarters. The tech firm operates three facilities in Kansas — one in Lenexa, Edgerton and Kansas City, Kansas.
