Hermes partners with Tesco to expand Parcelshop network

05 August 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Logistics & Supply Chain


Consumer delivery company Hermes has announced a partnership with Tesco to provide ParcelShop services across its convenience estate nationwide. 

 

Services will commence from 6 September in the first phase of stores and a continued roll-out is planned over the coming months.

 

The Hermes ParcelShop estate currently includes more than 6000 independent retailers, retail groups and lockers. 

 

Hermes predicts that by 2022, 80 per cent of the UK’s population will be within a 10-minute walk of their nearest ParcelShop or locker. 

 

It also expects to handle more than 80 million parcels through its Out of Home network this year.

 

Kath Gill, Head of ParcelShop Services at Hermes, said: “We’re really excited to announce our new partnership with Tesco, which will make Hermes ParcelShop services even more accessible to people across the UK, at a time when we know people are looking for maximum convenience and options for sending, receiving and returning their parcels. 

 

“The last 18 months have demonstrated the importance of being able to meet ever-changing consumer demands when it comes to both online shopping and customer-to-customer sending, so we continue to invest in our infrastructure, technology and services to support the nation.”
