Report: Amazon, Phrame discuss partnership for deliveries to car trunks Inc. is in discussions with smart license plate maker Phrame about a concept to deliver packages to the trunks of customers' cars, CNBC reported Oct. 10, citing a person with knowledge of the matter.

The product consists of a secure box to hold the car keys and that fits around the license plate, according to the report. Delivery drivers would be allowed access to the key box via a customer's smartphone.

The talks between Amazon and Phrame have reportedly reached an advanced stage. The effort is one of several by the e-commerce giant to better protect packages, which can be stolen or damaged when left unattended in front of homes.

Amazon is also working to develop a smart doorbell device that would grant one-time access into customers' homes for package deliveries, the report said, citing two sources familiar with the matter.

In addition, the company recently launched a service called Photo on Delivery, which sends customers a picture of their delivered packages.
