Mila is Partnering with Amazon Key for Business

Jun 23 / Anne Fischer
Mila is pleased to announce that they are partnering with Amazon Key for Business in the UK.  Amazon Key for Business enables Amazon delivery drivers to gain secure access to predefined delivery zones within large residential and commercial properties. This is done by installing a device into the building's existing access system. For a building to be considered, a building must have 10 or more units. Through multi-factor authentication, Amazon Key for Business ensures that the driver only gains access to the building when multiple components are confirmed.

How Does It Work?

In short, Amazon Key for Business is installed in a building's existing access control system. The Amazon driver requests access to the building via the Amazon delivery app on the day of delivery. After an authentication process (ID, route, location and time of access), the driver is then granted one-time, time-limited access for the delivery.
