The covid 19 will absolutely transform the business to the point where more shopping will be done online and delivered to their houses but we have a huge void to fill in the delivery business that is where my company comes into the picture ,the smart delivery boxes are large fancy internet connected boxes with each one having a unique id,these are solid structures which can be opened by the owners and the delivery guy who evidently need an otp to open it ,it will have inbuilt coolers and heater cabins  for fast perishables like milk,icecreams choclates and grocery and will have a disinfectant sprayer at its top which at regular intervals will spray disinfectants,of course has an internet connected camera,it also have a tip vending machine which can be regulated remotely this machine can also be connected with ring (of amazon)to work together and also the box will be made customized and fancy to match with peoples houses this will be your front yard smart locker can be powered with solar too,once mass produced will cost around 1200 US dollars
