Depot opens in time for Peak season
24 October 2018
Hermes has opened a purpose-built parcel distribution depot in Hemel Hempstead.
The 80,000 sq ft depot is at Prologis Park has the capacity to process more than 130,000 parcels each day, to be distributed across London and the Midlands.
This represents the latest major investment in Hermes’ network, following the opening of its £31m Midlands Super Hub in Rugby last year.
Martijn De Lange, CEO at Hermes UK, said: “Last year we handled 9.7m parcels during our busiest week of the year and we expect that number to grow significantly in 2018. Our team of experts spend the entire year planning for peak so retailers can enjoy absolute confidence in our ability to comfortably process increased volumes driven by Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the Christmas period.”
