Hermes, a renowned and UK market-leading brand in e-commerce deliveries, is wholly owned by Advent (75% shareholder) and the Otto Group (25% shareholder). Following Advent’s acquisition of 75% ownership in August 2020, Hermes has solidified its position as one of Europe’s most recognizable and cost-effective transport and delivery service providers. Notable commercial clients in the UK include prominent online retailers like Sports Direct, TopShop, Uniqlo, and eBay recommends them as a carrier.

Hermes offers a range of products, primarily divided into packets and parcels. Packets are limited to 2kg, while parcels can weigh up to 15kg. With a network of over 10,000 couriers, both contract and lifestyle-based, along with 4,500 parcel shops, Hermes handles an estimated 245 million parcels annually in the UK alone.
