New app hopes to revolutionise car food deliveries in test pilot in Barcelona

GROCERIES: Arriving into the boot of your car through an app

IF you have always hoped to snap your fingers and for food to appear then look no further.

Spanish car manufacturer Seat has teamed up with American upstart Saba to deliver supermarket groceries to the boot of your car.

In a test pilot in Barcelona, cars owners use the ‘Droppit’ app, a joint effort between the two automakers, to order food through a virtual supermarket.

Once the order is made, the owners drop off the keys to Saba staff as they can only make the order from two designated car parks.

Droppit then orders food from Deliberry supermarket and the Glovo courier company will deliver to Saba who then fill up the cars.

Droppit, available for both iOS and Android is part of an agreement signed last year to incorporate a digital marketplace for Seat cars.

“Solutions like Droppit are able to offer a personalised and valuable experience for the user as Seat continues strengthening its commitment to digitising the everyday tasks around the car,” said the head of Business Development of Seat, Arantxa Alonso.

In the future, both companies hope to develop technology where Saba employees use their fingerprint to access the vehicle.

CEO of Saba, Martinez Vila said: “Droppit is a big step forward in offering services and value for the customer to contribute new exciting technologies.”

The six-month pilot will be operating in the Pau Casals and Lluís Companys car parks and if successful, both companies hope to incorporate the app into other major Spanish cities.
