About Hermes Germany

Expanding its reach at a truly admirable rate, Hermes Germany is one of the most successful logistics providers in the country. A subdivision of the multinational company Hermes Europe, Hermes Germany deals in the B2C and C2C sectors handling operations like quality assurance, transportation, parcel deliveries, etc. 

Owned by the Otto Group, the world's largest mail order and logistics company, Hermes Germany was founded in 1972 in Germany. Within 20 years, it boasted of being the first delivery service that delivered to every address across the nation. The rapid growth of the Hermes network resulted in their combination under an umbrella brand, Hermes Logistik Gruppe, in 2003. Hermes Logistics Group was later rebranded as Hermes Europe in 2009. The company soon made a niche for itself in the international arena and is now a well-known brand in both Germany and Europe.

Hermes Germany is based in Hamburg, Germany. The company provides a range of services which include both domestic and international courier services for online and multichannel businesses. It delivers to 28 European countries and also to countries like Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Turkey, which are located in the vicinity. Additionally, Hermes Germany provides its customers with quality assurance services, sourcing, transportation and private customer logistics such as two man-handling. 

Hermes Germany has an extensive network of more than 16 thousand Hermes ParcelShops, which serves as an intermediary for customers to pick up or drop off their parcels. These ParcelShops not only act as drop-off points but also offer shipping-related services, such as shipping boxes and labels. 

Other services offered by Hermes Germany include customised delivery solutions and tracking facilities courtesy of its in-house tracking platform, which is easy to use for both sellers and their customers. Moreover, you can print your shipping labels yourself by creating a free Hermes account and customising your parcel labels. Their phone app even enables you to create a paperless parcel label, which can be scanned with a QR code at the ParcelShop. 

ClickPost has API integrations for couriers and tracking with Hermes for faster shipping and deliveries. You can view your shipments and their status on a single dashboard using ClickPost’s tracking software that pulls the data from the Hermes tracking platform, making it easier to manage deliveries.
