Hermes Parcel Size Guide

Hermes Europe is a German delivery company based in Hamburg that is owned by Otto Group. Hermes operates in Germany, France, Austria, Italy, Russia and the UK.

Hermes provide both personal and business based delivery and collection services in the UK.

Hermes Parcel Size Guide

Hermes allows you to send parcels that weigh up to 15kg and have a maximum length of 120cm, with a maximum volume of 245cm. Read our guide on how to calculate the volume of a box. Basically, to work out the volume of your parcel add together the two shortest dimensions and multiply by two and add the length. If the result of that calculation is equal or less than 245cm you can send your parcel via Hermes.

The size of Hermes parcels is determined by weight, except for packages that fit into the Postable category.

Hermes Postable parcels have a maximum parcel size of 35cm long x 23cm wide x 3cm deep with maximum weight up to 1kg. This makes the packages letterbox friendly. If want to find out how to measure your package size take a look at our Cardboard Box Size Guide.
