Weekend Recap April 27

“Amazon will begin delivering packages to Volvo and GM cars, even when drivers aren’t around.

The service will be free for Amazon Prime members with an active GM OnStar or Volvo On Call account and is available in 37 U.S. cities and surrounding areas. The companies have plans to expand the service to more locations.

The move adds another location where customers can receive packages, which is key for Amazon as its retail business depends so heavily on deliveries. The e-commerce giant has experimented with several types of partnerships, such as recent expansions into delivering groceries and meals.”
