SMEs who send small items that will fit through a standard letterbox will be able to take advantage of a brand-new service from Hermes that offers some of the lowest-priced services on the market and an almost guaranteed first-time delivery rate, as the recipient does not need to be home.
‘Postable’ is available for business account customers who have a dedicated regular collection and send more than 150 items per week, and is fully trackable. Prices start from £1.80 (US$2.36) excluding VAT. Items will need to be no more than 23cm wide (9in) , 35cm long (13in) and 3cm deep (1in) , but at least 1cm deep (0.3 in).
Postable is also available for consumers using the Hermes Send service and is the subject of a campaign called #SendMoreLove, which encourages people to show others they care with a personalized and thoughtful gift. Consumers will pay £2.26 (US$2.96) including VAT.
Commenting on the launch, Martijn de Lange, CEO at Hermes UK, said, “This latest product launch further expands our UK offering to enable more customers to access a premium service that doesn’t cost the earth. Postable is a big step forward for Hermes as we become the consumers’ carrier of choice and we’re pleased that our business customers can now also benefit from this diversity in parcel size and low pricing.”
