Hermes Courier

In the UK Hermes deliver for major catalogue brands such as Next, Lakeland and Boden. It is a courier network similar to, but not the same as those we work with at P4D. The story of Hermes begins in Germany in 1972. Hermes Logistics began as an in house delivery service for the major German Otto Group. For a long time Hermes business was through sister companies and in house deliveries, but for the last decade they have extended to deliver for external companies.

    Same Day Delivery

    If you have a parcel, pallet or document you need to ship in a hurry within the UK, get an instant quote right here for a TNT Same Day collection and delivery.

    This is a documents service for papers only. Your documents must weigh 1.5kg or less when packaged and be 40cm x 30cm x 5cm or smaller in size.

    Package your documents in a cardboard envelope, not paper, so they can withstand transportation within a large courier network (?). Measure the dimensions for your envelope in the same way as you would measure a parcel, using 1cm for anything less than 1cm in size.
