Evri (Hermes) shipping services and rates

Hermes still operates under this brand for European parcel deliveries, but it now uses only the Evri name for shipments in the UK.

Hermes offers a series of shipping services throughout Europe, with the Hermes standard deliveries being particularly popular in Germany, Austria and the UK. For standard deliveries from the UK, the Hermes shipping costs and rates depend on the size and weight of the parcel, the destination and the type of service. Deliveries made to a Hermes parcel shop or locker are more affordable, but the collection can only be made within working hours of the respective Hermes parcel shop or locker. Hermes parcel deliveries must weigh under 15 kg. It is not possible to send heavier parcels with Hermes, either domestically or internationally.

How much does it cost to send a parcel with Hermes?

To give you an idea of the price range, we have compiled a table with the Hermes shipping costs for UK standard deliveries from London to Manchester*:

If you are not satisfied with the Hermes shipping costs or if you need to ship heavier packages, you can get an immediate shipping price with us.

Hermes Parcelshops and drop-off points

Hermes offers a series of parcel shops and drop-off points from which to ship or receive a package. These parcel shops are normal stores or businesses that serve as Hermes drop-off and pick-up locations. To find a Hermes parcel shop with a print facility for your label or know where to drop your Hermes parcel, you can locate the closest parcel shop introducing your postal code on the Hermes website.

One of the main advantages of using Hermes Parcel Shops is that they have more flexible working hours. Because they are normal businesses, you will be able to drop off or pick up your parcel during business hours or even on the weekend.
