We're Hermes the parcel people

We’re the UK’s consumer delivery specialist, providing flexible and affordable delivery options to home, work, ParcelShops and Lockers, delivering more than 400 million parcels a year with a mission to be the UK’s carrier of choice.

The Hermes journey began in 1974 as Grattan Mail Order in Bradford. We’ve grown over the years, with an increasing number of hubs and depots across the country, a constantly expanding number of ParcelShops and a growing friendly, local courier network. In 2009, we launched our customer to customer business offering a cheaper, easier, faster way to send parcels. Since the launch, we’ve added lots of extra services, including international delivery, Print In-Store devices in our ParcelShops, safe place photos and renewable energy fuelled vehicles.

We’re now the biggest dedicated parcel delivery company in the UK offering 7-day delivery solutions for anyone who wants to send a parcel. We work alongside 80% of the UK’s top retail brands including Next, ASOS and John Lewis.
