Connect Easy is a pilot project, being run by Audi in collaboration with DHL, that will give DHL couriers the ability to deposit packages in the trunks of Audi cars.

In order to use the service, owners of Audi cars must first agree to their vehicles being tracked for the delivery timeframe. The DHL courier will then be given a code that gives them temporary access to the trunk of the recipient's vehicle so that they can deposit the package there. The code is only valid for a brief period of time, after which it expires once the trunk is closed.

Few first-world problems are as annoying as missing a delivery just because the courier showed up when you were away. By giving couriers temporary access to your car's trunk, this hassle could be done away with altogether.
