"smart ready to drop" testing in Germany

Stuttgart - smart recently established the smart lab as the brand's think tank to accelerate the development and implementation of creative urban mobility projects. 'smart ready to drop' is the first innovation to emerge from the lab. It is an innovative service that makes online shopping even easier. In cooperation with DHL Paket, smart will enable parcels to be delivered to the boot of your car. The beta test will start in the autumn in Stuttgart, followed by Cologne, Bonn and Berlin a few months later. The service will eventually be offered in seven German cities. The smart cars taking part in the beta test will be retrofitted with the required Connectivity Box at the dealership. From the autumn, the exclusive smart fortwo ready to edition will come equipped with the Connectivity Box.

It's so easy to shop online: A click of the mouse and your order is placed, but delivery can be tricky if you're not at home. 'smart ready to drop' makes order delivery that much easier. All the smart driver has to do is specify their car as the delivery address. The delivery driver will also pick up return parcels.

'smart ready to drop' further maximises the car's use especially in the city and offers a mobility concept that goes beyond driving. The beta test is the biggest in-car delivery test ever performed in Germany.

'"smart ready to drop" is the beginning of our next drive to further enhance the quality of urban life', says smart boss Dr Annette Winkler. 'This is our way of staying true to our pioneering role in urban mobility. A lot of other services that make city life easier are also in the works.' For example, private car sharing.

From the autumn, smart car drivers can test a new logistics service: smart car boot = parcel drop-off point - Daimler Global Media Site

Sounds like a "Catch me if you can" delivery program!
