Deutsche Post's DHL unit is in talks with Volvo Car Group on a partnership that would allow the parcel delivery service to remotely deliver to Volvo Car customer's cars according to reports.

Bloomberg reported that the talks are still private concerning a service that would enable one-time access by a delivery agent with a parcel.

The offering would follow a pilot project in Sweden that used Volvo's GPS-linked On Call service to enter vehicles. DHL would only get access after the owner accepts delivery via text message, Bloomberg said.

If Volvo does announce an agreement for such a service, it could steal a march on its premium competitors.

The Bloomberg report added that Deutsche Post has recently installed automated streetside kiosks across Germany where consumers can pick up parcels at any time.
