CNBC reported, citing a person familiar with the deal, that Amazon is in advanced talks for a partnership with Phrame, a maker of "smart" license plates that will allow items to be delivered to a customer's vehicle trunk.
Amazon is also reportedly developing a smart doorbell device that could grant drivers a one-time pass to the home for delivery.
Of course, if that weirds you out too much, there's always your car's trunk. Users can unlock the box with their smartphone and grant a delivery person access to deliver the items directly to the user's vehicle trunk, according to the CNBC report.
CNBC reported that Amazon is still working out the details, but the Phrame-enabled delivery service may be offered free to Amazon Prime subscribers.
Amazon has nearly perfected speedy delivery to your home.
The new initiatives are part of Amazon's effort to go beyond convenience and fix problems associated with unattended delivery. "It's not just the financial cost but also the impact that a failed delivery can have on brand reputation and customer loyalty".
Bloomberg's Spencer Soper noted that the relationship between Amazon and its delivery partners may well continue, though the e-commerce company would gain more control over how a package is sent.
