Waiting for a parcel from the postman can be infuriating. Even with online trackers, you can sometimes sit at home expecting a delivery only to be told it won't actually be making it off the truck until tomorrow. Or that it's just sitting in the local dispatch center and hasn't even made it on the road yet. Amazon is hoping to improve upon regular online trackers with a new system that helps you keep a closer eye on your parcel.
According to the Verge, Amazon UK will next month start using DPD's 'Follow My Parcel' service to help customers track next-day deliveries. The service gives you a delivery window (one hour) and shows you where on the map your delivery driver is. What's more, you can request for the package to be delivered to a neighbour, delay the delivery for another day, and check the name of your driver, all from your phone.
