Hermes network expansion

Hermes has opened a 100,000 sq ft  hub is at the Warrington South Distribution Park to replace an existing site in Bradford. The move is expected to reduce mileage and journey times for the trunking operation.

It has also opened an additional location at Crawley in West Sussex, and expanded its site at Rotherham.

The 45,000 sq ft Crawley depot will be operational in September this year.  It will create 34 jobs and brings Hermes’ network to 20 locations. It has access to the M23 and M25 and will handle forecasted parcel volume expansion in the south east.

In Rotherham, Hermes is relocating to a 35,600 sq ft warehouse  at Vector 31 Business Park as a result of recent business growth.

Chief executive Carole Woodhead, said: “These latest improvements to our hub and depot infrastructure mean we possess the necessary capacity within our network to achieve our future growth plans and are well prepared to handle high volumes during the forthcoming peak period.”
