Hermes: Clifford James’ deliveries

BVG Airflo has appointed Hermes to provide a nationwide home delivery solution for its Clifford James and Samuel Windsor brands. Under the two-year deal, Hermes will handle a proportion of its parcel traffic totaling more than 750,000 items of clothes, shoes and homeware each year.

Hermes will make daily collections using a dedicated trailer from BVG Airflo’s distribution centre in Skelmersdale, Lancashire. Parcels will be processed at Hermes’ national sortation hub in Warrington before being distributed through its UK depot network for onward delivery to addresses across the UK on a standard 48-hour service.

Iain Burgess, CEO of BVG Airflo, said: “We needed a home delivery solution that reflected the high quality service we provide to our customers. Hermes is the leading specialist in the marketplace based on its ability to deliver in a flexible, affordable and effective manner, so we look forward to working closely with them moving forward.”

 Gary Winter, sales & marketing director of Hermes UK, said: “We are now handling more than 170m collections and deliveries each year on behalf of over 120 high street, catalogue and online retailers. We are at the forefront of the consumer delivery sector by providing a range of convenient and hassle-free delivery options to home, work, neighbour, safe place or ParcelShop that meet the precise needs of our customers.”
