myHermes publish Christmas opening times
myHermes have bounced back from their problems last week it seems. With Christmas fast approaching, they’ve published their service schedule for the weeks ahead:
myHermes recommend the following:
“- For ParcelShop collection times pelase contact your local ParcelShop store directly to confirm their opening times over Christmas and the New Year
– 17th December is the last day when a courier collection can be booked for the following day for delivery before Christmas*
– 19th December is the last day that parcels can be dropped at a ParcelShop for delivery before Christmas*
* We will endeavour to deliver parcels collected by these dates before Christmas, however we cannot guarantee it”
Their delivery drivers seem to be a bit under strain at the moment and have not fully recovered from the delays created during the fire (on top of the heavy loads caused by Christmas). I had a delivery today at 18:00 today, two days after the driver received the parcel.
Their distribution network seems to be doing better than the “last mile” pseudo-independent delivery contractors.
