Smart Automobile, a division of Daimler and a company known for its Smart cars, is adopting a brand new program that will make it possible for DHL delivery parcels to be quickly and easily delivered directly to the trunks of cars.

This particular program, which has rather appropriately been named Smart Ready To Drop, is a truly innovative measure that revolves around vehicles being fitted with a so-called Connectivity Box, which is capable of working on conjunction of both 2G and 3G networks whilst using Internet of Things protocols, enhancing the overall communications architecture. This is key towards ensuring that parcels are delivered in a timely manner to the right vehicle.

Ultimately, the smart box project is all about "accelerating the development and implementation of creative urban mobility projects."
