Waitrose unpacks groceries while you’re out

Waitrose is to test a delivery service which will allow drivers to enter a customer's home while they are out, and put their groceries away. The trial uses smart lock technology to allow customers to set an access code for their door lock which is deleted when the delivery is complete. Profit margins on home deliveries are thin, and one analyst said the aim was to boost loyalty and profitability.
