Everything you need to know to send a parcel with Hermes

What is Hermes parcel delivery?

With Hermes you don’t have to wait in at home for collection, you can drop your package at a nearby shop to save you time and money. Hermes offer two delivery services, collections and drop offs.

With collection, a Hermes driver comes to your door to pick up your parcel. The parcel is then delivered to the address that you told us when you booked the delivery. If your collection doesn't take place on first try for any reason, Hermes will attempt to collect two times over the following two days.

If you don’t want to wait for collection you can choose to drop off your package; instead of a Hermes driver collecting your parcel, you take it to a drop-off shop or location. There are many drop off shops around the UK, these are easy to find by using our tool below.

Hermes started in 2009 and quickly grew into one of the UK’s most popular courier services. They successfully deliver over 290 million parcels a year, developing into one of the most trusted names in the industry. Hermes employ over 9,000 local freelance couriers who work hard to collect the awaiting parcels from their area.

Hermes delivers to the UK and a selection of European countries. Hermes do not offer next day delivery, they offer economy and super economy services.

How do I track my Hermes shipment?

Tracking a Hermes package is easy, simply copy and paste the tracking number we gave you when you booked into our tracking system. The Hermes order is then displayed on the screen.

You can now see time your parcel has been scanned, and how close to your destination address the parcel is.

  • You can track the parcel whenever you wish
  • Your recipient can also track the parcel, just add their email when you make the order
  • If anything delays your delivery it will appear here as an "exception" and you will be emailed about it
