SAN FRANCISCO — I gave Amazon the keys to my car last week and it went pretty well.
Not that Amazon needed a lift (and the actual key was a digital one.) I was testing a new program, launching Tuesday, that lets Amazon drivers unlock a customer’s vehicle via an app and leave their packages inside it, rather than on their doorstep. Think of it as Amazon turning your car into a locker, only you get to decide where the locker is located — and you can move it around.
It’s a new addition to the Amazon Key program, which began in October, that allows Amazon drivers to open customers’ front doors and leave packages inside.
