As one of the UK's leading courier specialists, Hermes deserve their time in the spotlight. In 2020, Hermes successfully delivered 630 million parcels, an increase of 250 million from 2019. To support the growing demand for deliveries, Hermes opened 4 operational and 5 new depots, increased its fleet by 2,500 and created more than 10,500 new roles. It's no wonder Hermes are a household name!
In 1972, Hermes was founded in West Germany, gradually expanding through the country and into France by the late 1990s. With the 2000s steadily looming, Hermes felt the pressure to deliver at faster speeds. Thanks to emerging technologies, they could deploy parcels quicker but found that missed deliveries started to increase.
To fix this problem, Hermes were the first to begin sending local self-employed couriers. This meant a community member could know a customer's delivery preference or leave their package with a trusted neighbour.
Since the turn of the century, Hermes has gone from strength to strength, becoming the first courier provider to offer a 7-day-a-week service. This has enabled online shoppers and retailers to provide a convenient delivery solution, and Hermes continue to invest in making their service better to this day.

Not only are Hermes courier services low-cost, but they have a wide range too! Hermes Postable is an affordable letterbox postal service designed for smaller packages.
